Synopsis

Synopsis

Meg's family has moved a lot because of her father's drinking. Meg arrives in her town longing to find a real friend, someone she can talk to and write stories with. When she and Grace join forces to write a book, she's thrilled that she has finally found someone who likes her for who she is, who trusts her and confides in her.

But she can't tell Grace about her father. Even though she hates to lie, Meg can't resist telling tall tales about her family and her life to Grace and other kids.

For Meg, friendship turns out to be the key to telling the truth, and also to a better life for her family.

Praise

“Just about every kid can relate to the desire to cover up family flaws, so they’ll understand Meg’s dilemma and they’ll be glad to see her reach better times.”—The Bulletin, Recommended

“The author’s portrayal of a family in crisis is convincingly tragic. . . . The story is realistic and hopeful with discussable issues appropriate for a wide audience.”—School Library Journal
