Narrator Cassandra Morris embraces the dreamy quality of Louisiana Elefante, one of three friends who first appeared in RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE. Here her grandmother, formerly a minor character, becomes a brutally strong force. She wakes Louisiana in the middle of the night and whisks her away from the stability she's found, pulling her into a mad plan for a "date with destiny." Morris reflects the 12-year-old's increasing alarm as her grandmother grows stranger, needier, and more remote until she disappears entirely, leaving only a note. This note reveals that the past Louisiana believed in was a fabrication. Morris embodies the lost and lonely Louisiana who wonders where she will fit in the world. Morris's wonderful narration gives voice to the loving forces around Louisiana and the lyrical voice DiCamillo has created for her character.
