This is an emotional story about a young girl named Rachel who reluctantly phones her grandfather once a week. It is not something she enjoys doing as he is not an easy conversationist. When the grandfather becomes ill and she has to spend more time with him he becomes to mean more to her than her best friend, her writing or even her new found boyfriend. This book was the "1987 Newbery Honor Book" for the most distinguished contribution to literature for children. The author has also written "Taking Terri Mueller".
