". . . I know when you and me get sad, all we think about is the other Before Time-before the fire, before we lived apart from each other." Twelve-year-old Lonnie, a.k.a. Locomotion, wishes that he and his sister, Lili, who have different foster mothers, could be growing up together. And he misses their parents, who died in a fire several years ago. But Lonnie knows that they're both lucky to have-and love-their new families, too. In letters to Lili, he reflects on family and friends, loss, love, and the importance of peace.
