Anna Casey likes living in Florida with Miss Johnette, her foster mother. Best of all Miss Johnette wants to adopt Anna. Still, it is hard grow into a new life and a new school, when you ve been rootless nearly all of your life.
By chance, Anna starts up a correspondence with Mica, who lives on a sailboat with The Captain, her beloved but often absent father. But beneath the surface of Mica s exotic, footloose lifestyle is a similar sense of longing to belong to some place and someone.
Then Mica gets good news: her father plans to anchor the boat in Florida Keys for a year. Now she can go to school just like other kids. But her long-distance friendship with Anna gets off track when Mica makes a school friend. And just when Anna is feeling shut out by Mica, she suddenly has to share Miss Johnette s attention with Mr. Webster, a new suitor. When the Captain s parenting style is finally deemed unfit, it may be that Anna and Miss Johnette are the only ones who can help Mica.
