Marcie’s life seems to be falling apart when her summer vacation up north seems to be extended indefinetly in the wake of her parent’s break up. She survives by making a friend in her new town and keeping in touch with her best pal back home Kate. She does her best to keep in touch with boyfriend Linus as well, but long distance relationships are hard and Marcie has no idea when or if she will be back and the longer she’s gone the more remote the idea of going home becomes, but suddenly she is returned to her old life, but with more questions than answers. Suddenly she must fit back in with her friends and figure out where she stands with Linus and the new friends she left behind. The characters resonated with me and I found the plot had some unexpected moments, but the neatest thing about this one for me was that it was all written as verse.
