When Abby is assigned a pen pal for extra credit, she leaps at the opportunity to write to someone in a country with mountains, a place as different as possible from the Illinois farmland surrounding her own home. When she finds out something she's not supposed to know, Abby discovers just how many things can stand in the way when you reach out to someone new. Black-and-white pencil drawings. Winner of the 2010 Christopher Award.
