My mom calls me Miss Blue and I'm thirteen years old, although most folks think I am younger. Since my father left my mom, we have moved around a lot. When I tell people I was in four schools in one year, they just look at me like I'm crazy.

Of course, it has been hard going from one place to another and making new friends, but I am sort of used to it now. My mom always tells me to 'bloom where you're planted' and that's pretty much what I try to do.

Right now we are living on a ranch where my mom got a job and I really like this place a lot. I've settled in and Stew Pot - that's my dog - and I have been exploring the area around the ranch. I've found some lame wild animals and other creatures that I can use my special healing powers with. Oh, I nearly forgot; I also met a boy about my age and he's kind of interesting, if you know what I mean.

Things had been going pretty good and then a stranger showed up at the ranch one day and he really upset everything. Now I'm going to have to make some pretty serious decisions about where I want to go and who I want to live with. My life really got complicated when this person walked in the door, as you'll see when you read about me in this novel.
