Sally Derby takes readers to a small lake in 1970s Michigan, where thirteen-year-old Kyle comes to understand that loss isn't forever, and that people are more complicated than they seem.

"Debut novelist Derby writes a quiet, solid, and benevolently old-fashioned story..."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A poignant coming-of-age story..."
