Summary
Anneli has lived in a small Mennonite community in Bolivia her whole life - until now. She and her father have packed their bags, changed their names and fled, and she doesn't know why. She only knows that her father is trying to locate her mother, who disappeared when Anneli was five. Arriving in Toronto, Anneli has to fend for herself in an alien environment, isolated in a big city with no idea how to navigate the unspoken codes that come with being fourteen and in high school. Torn between two worlds, she is troubled by the things she and her father have left behind - a vanished town, a long-ago crime - but determined to find her mother: the one person who might be able to tell her just what it is they're running from
Summary
A Mennonite teen from Bolivia flees from her tight-knit colony with her father to Toronto, where she struggles to survive in an isolated, big-city environment with virtually no understanding of the local culture.
