An very interesting story. The main character is both sympathtic and exasperating (as 10 year old girls often are). The book really explores how rumors about a person can affect lives.

Very well written story that takes place in the early 70's about a young girl in upheaval; her family falls apart at the same time that a particularly horrendous crime occurs to a boy who lives on her street. These separate events become intertwined in her mind. Definitely recommend this--especially good if you lived through this period as the politics, etc will resonate.
