"Six months ago, fourteen-year-old Francine's mother died. She and her father are grieving still and unable to communicate with each other. Francine has no friends until she meets Ruthie, a black girl of her own age. They become inseparable, despite the warnings of Francine's father. Gradually, Francine and Ruthie realize that they have the key to discovering what really happened the night Francine's mother died. Did she really lose her way in the woods? Or did something else happen?
