When Wren Abbott and Darra Monson are eight years old, Darra's father steals a minivan. He doesn't know that Wren is hiding in the back. The hours and days that follow change the lives of both girls. Darra is left with a question that only Wren can answer. Wren has questions, too.

Years later, in a chance encounter at camp, the girls face each other for the first time. They can finally learn the truth—that is, if they're willing to reveal to each other the stories that they've hidden for so long. Told from alternating viewpoints, this novel-in-poems reveals the complexities of memory and the strength of a friendship that can overcome pain.

  • This week we read the book Thank You Mr. Falker and then wrote a letter to our favorite teacher.
  • We read Shubert Rants and Raves which talks about our triggers. We wrote about what bugs us!
  • We also read Shubert is a S.T.A.R and wrote about how to go from bug crazy mad to caterpillar calm.

Mrs. Beck

Hello Friends! My Name is Mrs. Beck and I am a 5th grade teacher at Mill Creek Upper Elementary. I graduated from the University of Missouri and have a Masters in Administration through the University of Central Missouri. When I'm not teaching I love working out, baking, and snuggling with my puppy dogs.
