Alice's life is about to change.
She's a skinny orphan. She's never been able to hear too well.
And she can't speak too well, either. The only person who seems to
care for her-one of the nuns at the orphanage-gets taken away from
Alice in a freak accident.
And then one day somebody calls Alice by the wrong name.
Miami, she says.
Miami Shaw, who may be Alice's twin sister.
Who lives only a few miles away.
Who has what Alice has always dreamed of-a whole wonderful
family. But is there a place in that family for Alice?
From bestselling author Gregory Maguire comes a funny,
heartrending story of the strength of sisterhood and the struggle
to find a family of one's own.
