Young Aggie knows the northern woods. So when her mother's depression worsens, she seeks solace sketching nests of wild birds. Then she's forbidden to climb the trees she loves. Angry, she accidentally lights a tragic fire, and flees into Pacific Northwest forest—determined to remain undiscovered. Hurting from her parents' split, Celia also wants to run. But when she joins the search for Aggie, she meets two young men who compel her to stay. One is autistic; the other, dangerous.
