Abstract
Teresa had lost one of her legs, cut off above the knee, in an accident riding with her brother on her father's ATV when she was only three. Now she is ten-ish and has the chance to go to live with her aunt and uncle in Vancouver for a few months to get---and learn to use---a prosthetic leg! It means leaving her family, her dog, and her log-house home in Chilcotin, but it also should mean no more crutches. Not an easy choice for a young girl to make, but as the district nurse in Chilcotin said, Teresa had never been afraid to try something new, and she decides to accept the challenge.

An automobile accident that killed his parents and sister has left Mike Scott bitter, without legs, and with little will to live. His aunt Norma provides a home, and his best friend, Robbie, is attentive, but Mike remains deeply depressed. A project researching and writing the 50-year history of Carlton High School helps engage Mike, until eighth-grader Sarah is assigned to help him. Sarah reminds Mike of his little sister, and he works hard to drive her away. But her curiosity, frankness, and indefatigable good humor gradually nudge Mike out of his self-pity, until the day she disappears.
