Anna Casey s friend has just returned from Christmas vacation in the Keys bearing a small present for her from Mica, the precocious eleven-year-old girl he got to know during his time at his uncle s marina. This gift sets in motion a lively correspondence between the two girls; the resulting long-distance friendship gives readers new insight into Anna s growing relationship with her new foster mother and fills us in on Mica s difficulties dealing with her dad s drinking problem and adjusting to public school after years of home-schooling. These girls have a lot in common, but their personalities are quite different. What can Mica and Anna learn from each other? Can they truly be friends?
