Sandy thought that she and her brother would always live in their new house in Binghamton, New York, but on a crisp September day in 1949, a sudden tragedy changes everything: driving with the family on the way from New York to Connecticut to spend the Jewish holidays with relatives, Sandy’s dad stops to get gas. Moments later, Sandy witnesses the tragic death of her mother by a hit and run driver. How could everything go from perfect to terrible and totally change Sandy’s life in one moment? Events unfold quickly as Sandy’s dad must make decisions for Sandy and her brother. A new life begins for Sandy in the home of her Russian immigrant grandmother, Grammy, and with it come challenges – at home, at school and in the neighborhood. She misses her best friend back in Binghamton, and her dog, Butchie.
