She buys her clothes at Andys Cheapies, watches indie films at the Angelika, and wouldnt be caught dead on a hayride. But when her father gets sick and Matisses parents decide to leave Man-hattan for a small town in upstate New York, her perfect world crumbles. As Matisse trudges through life in Prague, she dreams of waking up in her apartment on West 78th Street with a father whos well enough to walk with her in Central Park and a mother who doesnt pretend that everything is okay. When rumors surround Matisse at school and her fathers symptoms worsen, Matisse realizes that the friends shes making in Prague are the kind you can count on. They help Matisse find the strength to reach out to her father, who may not be as far from her as she thought. And one particular farm boy shows Matisse that country living is a lot more magical than she ever imagined.
