Twelve-year-old Livy Two Weems knows there's a whole world to see beyond the North Carolina hills--which is the only place she's ever been. But she also knows family is more important than daydreams. With Mama watching the brand-new baby, Daddy still trying to write that banjo hit, and eight brothers and sisters running around, Livy Two spends most of her time doing chores or watching her siblings, especially her younger sister Gentle. When she has any time alone, she writes songs with her beat-up guitar. Her family has learned to make do with what they have, and when a doctor says little Gentle won't ever see, Livy Two quickly comes up with a plan to help her sister. But when more tragedy strikes, can she remain strong for her family?
