Publisher's Summary

When Cal Lavender's mother has an "unfortunate episode" at the library, Cal is taken to a group care home run by a strange old woman called "The Knitting Lady." Cal is clear that this is not her real life, just a temporary detour. But even detours can take you where you need to be. A charming, funny, and insightful first novel.


Audible Editor Reviews

The innocence and naiveté of the impressionable 11-year-old Cal, the protagonist of Jill Wolfson’s shimmering coming-of-age story who's taken away from her ill mother, is expertly conveyed by Full Cast Audio’s Grace Kelly, who’s plaintive yet evocative voice manages to capture Cal’s pre-adolescent confusion but eventual self-acceptance as she finds herself at Pumpkin House, a group home run by the sagacious Knitting Lady and inhabited by four other girls who overcome their differences form an unlikely but inseparable bond.
