Polly could not ignore the bite of winters cold breath, nor could she step into the heart of a shadow and step out of another shadow; anywhere! She couldnt outrun an automobile, or run up a steel anchor cable in the wind. All shed ever been able to do was alienate herself from her peers, but all that is about to change.

A friends daughter was his inspiration and is the soul for Polly. I was totally astounded at the maturity level of a child of her tender years. I mean the way she thought things through before she would comment on a problem, the mature way she would approach a given problem. I had to throw out all my preconceived notions as to how a girl that age would think and react. The real Polly was so mature in her thinking. I found I could let my Polly make decisions, and really handle social interactions, even with adults! I was dumbfounded! Did I mention the real Polly was only thirteen at the time Publishers website: http: sbpra. comAlecZandur This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
