Aurora is an artist, like her father. Through years of drawing lessons he taught her about light and color, perspective and form. "The great thing about art," Rory thinks, "is you can bring back something you've lost and keep it forever." But when her father leaves the family, it's Rory who is lost. In this exquisitely told story, a young girl must find her own way of creating, her own way of connecting, her own way of being.
