Publisher Comments:

A compelling story of survival from a three-time Newbery Honor winning author

At the end of I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This, Lena and her younger sister, Dion, set off on their own, desperate to escape their abusive father. Disguised as boys, they hitchhike along, traveling in search of their mother's relatives. They don't know what they will find, or who they can trust along the way, but they do know that they can't afford to make even one single mistake. Dramatic and moving, this is a heart-wrenching story of two young girls in search of a place to call home.

Synopsis:

At the end of "I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This," Marie's friend Lena and her little sister Dion ran away to escape their abusive father. Now, disguised as boys, Lena and Dion search for their mother's relatives, unable to afford to make even one mistake.
