Teenaged Laurie's sister sacrificed her life as a nurse in the Vietnam War. In the protest-ridden States, keeping that loss invisible feels safest to Laurie. But the shaky start of an unlikely friendship with the girl at school who dresses like a hippie helps Laurie find the courage to become un-invisible.
