Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times best seller Fish in a Tree comes a compelling story about perspective and learning to love the family you have.

Delsie loves tracking the weather - lately, though, it seems the squalls are in her own life. She's always lived with her kindhearted Grammy, but now, she's looking at their life with new eyes and wishing she could have a "regular family". Delsie observes other changes in the air, too - the most painful being a friend who's outgrown her. 

Luckily, she has neighbors with strong shoulders to support her, and Ronan, a new friend who is caring and courageous but also troubled by the losses he's endured. As Ronan and Delsie traipse around Cape Cod on their adventures, they both learn what it means to be angry versus sad, broken versus whole, and abandoned versus loved. And that, together, they can weather any storm.

Critic Reviews

“A richly embroidered cast of characters, a thoughtful exploration of how real friends treat one another, and the true meaning of family all combine to make this a thoroughly satisfying coming-of-age tale. Cape Cod is nicely depicted - not the Cape of tourists but the one of year-round residents - as is the sometimes-sharp contrast between residents and summer people. Hunt has crafted another gentle, moving tale of love and loss: the value of the one and the importance of getting over the other.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Family, friendship, heartaches, and exploring life

Beautifully written book by Lynda Mullaly Hunt and narrated by Lisa Cordileone. From start to finish, the listener/reader will taken to Cape Cod and see life through the eyes of Delsie’s eyes. So many storms in her life will be calmed. Highly recommend!
