11-year-old Britta's big Mormon family took in little Dori --- a member of the Ute tribe --- as a baby. Now, four years later, Dori's birth mother, Irene, is ready to take Dori back. Blunt and feisty, Britta is filled with anger. How can Irene claim Dori when she's been gone all this time? Britta will stop at nothing to keep her sister, even if it means running away. Hard as it is, though, she begins to see beyond her own biases, beyond the green of her little farming community, and beyond her own ideas of what makes a family.
