It’s a life-altering New Year for thirteen-year-old Lydia when she uproots to a Connecticut farm to live with her aunt following her mother’s death.Aunt Brat and her jovial wife, Eileen, are welcoming—and a little quirky. Just days after Lydia’s arrival, they adopt a big yellow dog with an unknown past. Wasn’t one rescue enough?And Lydia has secrets of her own.The box of “paper stuff” she keeps under her bed . . .That hole in the wall behind a poster in her room . . .And something she took from the big yellow dog that just might be the key to unraveling his mysterious past—but at what cost?“Connor has an innate ability to broach difficult subjects with gentleness, and the myriad strong female characters will be embraced by readers seeking heroines to cheer for.” —School Library Journal (starred review)“What stands out is the narrative’s essential kindness, as Lydia heals and rediscovers the meaning of home and family.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
