A gifted painter, Sadie comes from California to Connecticut determined to fit in at her new school. Yet her first attempt at making friends in the new town backfires when she reaches out to the loner everyone calls Fryin' Ryan, the very last person who can help her achieve her dream. And to further complicate matters, her twin brother, Ollie, keeps appearing to her, seeming to want something. Her twin brother, who died when they were twelve.
Carolyn MacCullough's first book, Falling Through Darkness, praised as "a promising debut" by The Horn Book, was a New York Public Library Best Book for the Teen Age. In its starred review of Stealing Henry, Booklist noted the "flawless" dialogue. She lives in New York City.
