Clarry Penrose finds the good in everyone—even in her father, who isn't fond of children, and especially girls. It's the early 20th century, and the only thing girls are expected to do is behave. But tomboyish Clarry longs for a life of her own, and more than anything, she wants an education. When World War I breaks out, Clarry is shocked to find that her brother Rupert has enlisted. When Rupert is later declared missing in action, Clarry is devastated. Now she must take a momentous step into the wide world, and in this novel for readers 9 to 12—also published as Love to Everyone—his might be her one and only chance.
