"Was it normal to know precisely who I wasn't, but not have a clue who I was?" Sixteen--year-old Charlena, "Charlie," definitely knows that she doesn't want to spend the summer with her father and his girlfriend, so she escapes to Gram's cottage on Lake Ringrose, where she hopes to explore her deceased mother's roots and lick her wounds over her creative-writing teacher's stinging words at the close of the school year. Interesting characters and a strong sense of setting bring the small northern Ontario community to life. Charlie doesn't realize that her gram's warnings against getting romantically involved with handsome local boy Kerry are founded not just on over protectiveness but on a family secret dealing with Charlie's true paternity. More than one mystery comes to light here, and all of the story's threads wrap up neatly at summer's end, including a different romance for Charlie.
