Davey is a teenage girl who has just lost her father during a shooting at the local convenience store. Davey, her brother, and her mother all move to New Mexico to see family to help cope with the loss. Here, Davey begins to see a therapist and gets a job at the hospital as a candy striper. She still spends much of her time alone riding on her bicycle until she meets a boy, Wolf, at the bottom of a canyon. The two get along very well and Davey meets Wolf's father who is battling cancer at the same hospital she works that. She is inspired by these two new friends as she mourns the loss of her father.

My favorite Judy Blume ever. Don't know why this one resonated with me so much, after all I never lost my dad to a robbery, lived in New Mexico or climbed into canyons, but I read this as a teenager and then again as an adult and just loved it. ( )

Great coming-of-age story about a teen getting over the horrific murder of her Dad. Her family packs up from Atlantic City to move to Los Alamos, NM and her vivid descriptions of the culture there is wonderful. The narration of the audiobook is superb and I highly recommend listening to rather than reading this book. ( )
