A novel in words and sketches. ?It?s only temporary,? twelve-year-old Skye McPhee writes in her sketchbook after being shipped off to her gran?s in Sierre Madre, California. After all, her parents have their hands full taking care of her older brother, who?s been severely injured in a car accident. So now Skye is in a new school sketching new kids and trying to stay invisible until she can return home. But her new life starts turning out better than she hoped; she?s making cool friends, and being away from her brother is actually drawing her closer to him. And then her sketchbook disappears and everything changes. Suddenly, Skye realizes that she doesn?t want her life in Sierra Madre to be temporary after all. But does she have a choice?
