‘I don’t want Charley. You know that…’
Auntie Louie didn’t want her, nor did Aunt Emm. Well, she could do without them, too.
So Charley runs away to live in a field. Her bed is a bit hard and there are earwigs in her supper, but the henhouse is familiar and comforting. She decides she is going to be all right until the sun goes down… Perhaps she should move closer to Aunt Louie’s house just in case of an earthquake or a deluge…
Charley’s week in the woods is a mixture of joy and terror, magic and misery, and from it all she gains a new understanding of herself and those she thought didn’t lover her.
