Twelve-year-old Olive doesn’t know any home except California, since she moved there with her parents when she was too young to remember. Life where her relatives live in eastern Ohio seems superior to hers. She dreams of the fun times at family reunions and the seemingly carefree lives her cousins talk about. In contrast, her life in dry California seems difficult and unexciting. But slowly, Olive begins to realize that God called her family there and where God placed her is the best place to be.
