Not her father, the boy she likes, or even the mysterious man from her mothers funeral.Sixteen-year-old Charlie, an ambitious and dedicated writer who thinks her small-town life doesnt offer any material for her work, is sure of three things: That her blow-up at her tactless creative writing teacher must have contributed to his heart attack, That she doesnt want to spend her summer with her fathers girlfriend and her triplets, And that she has to get away.She decides to spend the summer with her grandmother on remote Lake Ringrose in northern Ontario, where she thinks she can laze on a hammock all summer and get in touch with her mothers roots.

Instead, she steps into a series of unexpected adventures that will alter her view of what seemed a dull and tedious existence. For one thing, she agrees to compete in the gruelling Four Islands Race. Then she falls for Kerry, a handsome local hunk, and wants to tell him how she feels. As revelation upon revelation builds, she discovers the unthinkable: Kerry is her half-brother and the man shes always taken to be her father isnt after all. And then theres the mystery of the Chocolate Moose Man, an almost mythical figure who turned up at her mothers funeral thirteen years before.Its all rich grist for a keen-eyed young writers mill, as Charlie learns that the best material comes not from exciting travels and circumstances, but from journeys to new places inside herself.
