As a result of bullying, Raina, a ninth grader and only child from Denver, is withdrawn, timid, and listless. Concerned, but unable to leave their jobs, her parents arrange for her to try a new living arrangement. Raina flies to Minnesota, moves in with her aunt, uncle, and eight cousins. It is not a small adjustment; she now shares a room with a five and eight year old and finds privacy is something from her past. Raina adapts to rural Minnesota, discovers she is a talented runner and athlete and begins to participate in music. Most importantly, Raina learns to try new things and that change, while sometimes intimidating, can ultimately be for the better.
