Even Parr admits that sometimes he thinks his sister looks a bit like a guy. His mother is always trying to get Evie to change and be more feminine. Then one day beautiful Patsy Duff befriends Evie, and she does begin to change - but not the way everyone had expected. With wry and compassionate strokes M.E. Kerr explores the dilemma of expressing one's sexual identity.
