She soon grows close to a boy named Baxter, a bright young boy who desperately wants to live with his grandmother but is being isolated and trained for a life of hate. While Gracie is trying to make sense of how people come to hate so much. Her neighbor's cabin John and Vivian is firebombed, surely an act of racism against the African-American couple and their young granddaughter. Gracie believes it was the act of Baxter's cousin Jordan a soldier in the making.
As Gracie befriends and tries to help Baxter she is also has to face the impending forest fires coming in on the valley, her disgruntled relationship with Ralph, her mother's urging to come to her stepfather's deathbed and the return of Rob Christian.
In the end it will almost leave her broken and without a direction to turn.
Along with the main plot of the story, there was so many subplots it really keeps you reading. I felt complete empathy for all the stresses Gracie was going through. It was beautifully written.
As always I love a strong female that may doubt herself but will stand on her own two feet. Gracie is perfect example of this. There is also Allen the cook at the camp who is not only a great ally but has a great sense of humour that often offers Gracie some relief in all that is going on.
Looking forward to Gracie's next chapter in her life.
