Growing up in the changing days of the 1960s, Lee secretly wishes that she were an orphan like her hero, Anne Shirley. When Cassandra, a real live orphan, moves in across the street, Lee is thrilled. With a name like Cassandra, she has to be interesting! Will they be kindred spirits like Anne and Diana? Or will Kathy, Lee''s ex-best friend, come between them? As Lee and Cassandra''s friendship grows, Lee comes to realize that being an orphan is not as romantic as she had imagined. A tragedy in Lee''s life and the truth about Cassandra''s past brings the two girls closer as they go through a summer that will change both their lives.
