Two children who meet playing online Scrabble both struggle with loneliness and loss. Charlotte’s parents are older than anyone else’s in her class, and her dad just had a heart attack. Ben’s parents sit him down to tell him that they’re getting a divorce. Bullies and betrayal. Nicknames and popularity. Oddballs and outcasts. Courage and carrying on. One friend can make all the difference.
