This book is about family and friends that are always there for one another. The story is about a girl named Leah who used to live with her Mom. But it wasn’t until the last day of summer camp when her Dad came to pick her up instead of her mom. Her dad tells her that her mom and her sister moved away and that now she will be living with her dad and his girlfriend Gail. Leah meets an old friend named Will at her school and they become the best of friends!
I could really relate to this story because Leah, who was one of the main characters in this book, is going through a really difficult time right now with her mother leaving her without saying good bye or anything. A friend that I know went through the similar thing that Leah is going through
