A story to be felt and not forgotten, from the acclaimed author of Dandelion Clocks and Violet Ink . . .
It's a glorious summer and Erin and Martha are both stuck at Oak Hill Home for the Elderly. Erin is fed up: no one is listening to her, not her mum, nor her dad, nor her friends. She does not want to spend the summer helping out in an old people's home.
Martha is even more angry: she doesn't want to be living in the home and she can't make herself understood at all. Misunderstood and feeling ignored by everyone, they are equally frustrated by the situation. But as Erin learns to listen to Martha, she discovers some very important lessons about making her own voice heard.
