Description
The second life of Dinnie Doone begins when she is 13, in this novel for readers 10 to 14 by the Newbery Medal–winning author of Walk Two Moons. In Dinnie's original life, she moved to a dozen different cities, and in each one her family landed in deeper trouble; then without warning she was "kidnapped" by her aunt and uncle and taken to Switzerland. Separated from her family, she starts a new life in her uncle's international boarding school high in the mountains—a life that's strange and frightening, yet beautiful and full of "bloomabilities," as one of her new friends puts it.

"Dinnie gradually adjusts to her new environment as she makes friends with other students from around the world: exuberant Guthrie; bitter Lila; and language-mangling Keisuke, who says 'bloomable' when he means 'possible.' Together, these middle schoolers share classes and adventures, and explore ideas and emotions. As she reflects on her friends, her kind aunt and uncle, and her own vivid dreams, the youngster no longer sees herself as 'Dinnie the dot in my bubble.' Everyone can relate to the hard struggles of life, but, as the heroine comes to realize, the world is still full of 'bloomability'."—School Library Journal
