    Lily is watching her baby brother when she gets a call from her other brother, Michael. Their father just dropped eight-year-old Michael off at the airport in Baltimore without money or a plane ticket. Michael begs Lily to help him get home and to keep what Dad did a secret. Lily risks everything to rescue her brother. She cant believe that her dad would abandon his son in such a way. And after everything that Dad said and did to Michael, how can Michael still love him?This book was excellent. Cooney does a masterful job of getting into three siblings very different views of their parents divorce. I was drawn into the mystery of what was going on, and then to the characters as they struggled through life and their relationship with their father. I loved how Cooney ended it all. Touching and through-provoking. Highly recommended.
