This group of kids and this family...I was thrilled to be able to revisit Frankie and Tara and the gang from Saving Francesca. The plot of this story follows Tom Mackee. Tom, who I knew was a sweetie from the previous book. Tom, who I wanted to smack so many times. Melina Marchetta can tell a story like nobody's business. I laughed, cried, and grinned my way through this story of a boy who loses his way but finds the people who help him get back on track.
