Summary
Clara lives with her mother in the foothills of the Adirondacks and is obsessed by a need for family--or at the very least the knowledge of one. She learns that she had a twin sister who died at birth; she knows she must have a father somewhere; she knows little bits and pieces about her mother's father, whom she's never met; and that's all. In her search for information and attention, Clara meets an elderly immigrant who lives in a trailer park on the outskirts of her town. Their relationship, along with Clara's overactive fantasy life, finally brings her to learn the truth about her history and to gain some knowledge about what it means to be a grown-up.
Summary
Eleven-year-old Clara is struggling to find the truth about her missing father and grandfather and her twin sister, dead at birth, but her mother steadfastly refuses to talk about these people who are lost to her daughter
