"When her trailer home burns to the ground, Ember believes that her best friend, Anson, started the fire because he found out that her family practices Wicca. Narrator Erin Moon captures Ember's grief, anger, and confusion when she and her family, including her little sister, are forced to move to a campground for the summer. Moon brings life to the lists and letters Ember writes in an effort to understand what happened and reconnect to the world. Moon's expressive dialogue for secondary characters helps listeners see some of the details that Ember doesn't. The story is an eye-opening look at Wicca spirituality and the realities of homelessness, and a moving exploration of the difference between want and need. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
