Gwen's mother left years ago. Now Gwen receives postcards with a French postmark promising a reunion. Every night, Gwen makes a box out of the cards and chants a spell that will take her to her mother. Meanwhile, she befriends Clara, a new girl in her class. How can Gwen invite Clara home for dinner with her dad and Leon, her dad's boyfriend? This sensitive portrayal of a controversial subject shows the meaning of true friendship.
