A young couple wakes up to find a strange boy asleep on their porch. At first they don't expect him to stay, but stay he does, and as the couple's connection to him grows, the three of them blossom into an unlikely family. But where has he come from and to whom does he belong?
In this moving story, Carnegie Medal winner Sharon Creech poignantly reminds us of the surprising relationships that can bloom when generosity and unconditional love prevail.
