With her father in jail and her unstable mother incapable of caring for her, 10-year-old Charlie is sent to live with an aunt and uncle she didn't know she had. Defensive and pugnacious, she resists their efforts to make her feel at home, as she has no intention of staying in this small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The one thing she loves here is the stray dog she takes in and cares for. Gradually, though, she comes to value the steady support of a boy who befriends her, and the unconditional love that her relatives offer. Every day, she makes the same unspoken wish, revealed only on the last page. In this first-person narrative, Charlie's emotions are as evident as the events she records and her occasional misreading of other people's lives and intentions. At school, at home, and in the community, the characters and settings are well drawn, but it's the narrator's convincing, compelling voice that will draw readers into the novel and keep them there until her wish finally comes true.
