“Her mom wrinkled her nose. ‘You know I don’t know the first thing about taking care of plants, Endy.’ A week later the plant drooped below the window sill, dead. Every time Endy looked at the dead plant she remembered her hope as she planted the seed and watered it. Endy threw the plant away so it didn’t hurt so much.”
Wouldn’t it be nice if parents came with instruction manuals? But they don’t, so nine-year-old Endy is on her own as she tries to relate to her mom. Only the strange old lady next door seems interested in Endy. Gradually, she and the old lady become secret friends as they share time after school each day. When tragedy strikes, Endy has to ask her mom for help. But without a firm mother-daughter relationship, can Endy trust her mom?
