Summary
"Toda's father has gone away to fight in the war. Luckily, he's read about camouflage and will be able to hide from the enemy by disguising himself as a bush. Toda is sent to stay with her mother where it'll be safer. Her journey across the border is full of danger and adventure, but she doesn't give up. She has to find her mother. A clear-eyed, funny, and off-beat novel about a girl making sense of a baffling world."--Page 4 of cover
