Step on a crack, break your mother's back, touch another person's skin, and Dad's gone for good. Caddie has a history of magical thinking — of playing games in her head to cope with her surroundings. When her parents split up, don't touch becomes Caddie's mantra. Maybe if she keeps from touching another person's skin, Dad will come home. Soon, despite Alabama's humidity, she's covering every inch of her skin and wearing evening gloves to school. And that's where things get tricky.
