In this sequel to Woodson's I Hadn't Meant to Tell You This, thirteen year old Lena and her younger sister Dion run away from their abusive father, searching for a place to call home. I fell in love with these two girls and their hero, Miz Lily. Their happy ending is just right: unexpected but completely believable. Highly recommended.
