Birdie has questions for God. For starters, why couldn't God roll history back to September 10, 2001, and fix things - so the next day was an ordinary sunny day and not the devastating lead-in to two wars? Daddy has already been to Iraq twice. Now he's going again, and Birdie is sure he'll die. At the very least, she won't see him again for a year. To save money, she, Mom, and baby Billy have moved to Gran's, where shy Birdie must attend a new school. Doesn't God remember how hard it was for Birdie to make friends at Bible Camp? Counselor Ron taught about Judgment there - and the right way to believe. Has Birdie been praying wrong? Why else would God break their bargain?
