Eleven-year-old Shirley Alice Burns lives with her domineering mother, Hurricane Anna, and loving grandmother. One day she unexpectedly discovers that her beloved father isn?t in absentia as her family would have her believe, but dead. And she understands all too well why they haven?t told her; she?s always been shy and quiet and Anna has always been protective of her. But if Shirley doesn?t start speaking up, she isn?t going to be able to do the things she wants to do. Through the help of a mouse, her hero Pippi Longstocking, and her cousin Phillie, Shirley finds the strength to give her dreams a voice and convince everyone, even Hurricane Anna, that she doesn?t need to be sheltered, especially from the truth.
