Synopsis: Teresa stays with her aunt and uncle in Vancouver and spends her days at the hospital preparing to walk on a new prosthetic leg. Her teenage brother, Tom, stays with her for the first weekend. He surprises her by playing enthusiastically with two old dolls and a log dolls' house that Teresa's relatives gave to her. When Tom leaves, Teresa is bereft, even more so when he doesn't call or answer her letters. Finally, she reaches out to him, but in so doing pushes him further away. Now, Teresa must find a way to confront her brother and to master her new leg so that she can go home in time for Christmas.

Tom rolled onto his side and watched as Teresa set up matchbox beds for Tape and Curly in the log house loft.
“What are you doing with those weird dolls, Twig?”
“Their names are Tape and Curly, and they’re not weird,” said Teresa. Tom grunted in response.
“Do you see where their beds are, Tom? They’re going to sleep in the loft, just like we do at home.”
“Wish we were at home now,” said Tom, rolling onto his back again and closing his eyes.
