Lucy Rooney is a feisty, precocious tomboy who questions everything-even God. It's not hard to see why: a horrible accident killed her mother and blinded her father, turning her life upside down. It will take a strong but gentle housekeeper-who insists on Bible study along with homework-to show Lucy that there are many ways to become the woman God intends her to be. Aunt Karen is taking over Lucy's life-what's left of it.
Lucy is faced with her toughest obstacles yet in her quest to find out just what it means to be a girl. With Aunt Karen taking over while Dad is away at a special school, teachers at middle school not being as understanding as Mr. Auggy, J.J. learning first-hand about bullying, and soccer becoming way more serious as she prepares for Olympic Development Program try-outs, Lucy has to depend on God more than ever.
