Summary
"Follows twelve-year-old Dasha through a year full of turmoil after her mother leaves for America. It is the early 1990s in Moscow, and political change is in the air. But Dasha is more worried about her own challenges as she negotiates family, friendships and school without her mother. Just as she begins to find her own feet, she gets word that she is to join her mother in America -- a place that seems impossibly far from everything and everyone she loves"--provided by publisher
Summary
12-year-old Dasha experiences a year full of turmoil after her mother leaves for America and she remains in Moscow with her grandparents
