Peggy Jean "Peej" West is a great one for figuring things out. "If she weren't a 12-year-old girl," says her sister, Annie, "she'd probably be a five star general." So when Peej decides that faith healer Graciella Bujold can cure her of cancer, it seems only natural to Annie that the two of them should take off on their way to find her. And no kidnappers or hoodlums are going to stop them from seeing "Grassy Ella!"
