Humans are about to leave footprints on the moon, but what sort of mark can one girl make here on earth? It' s 1969 and life is changing fast. Sharnie Burley is starting high school and finding it tough to make new friends. As the world waits to see if humans will land on the moon, the Vietnam War rages overseas. While her little cousin, Lewis, makes pretend moon boots, young men are being called up to fight, sometimes without having any choice in the matter. Sometimes without ever coming home. Dad thinks serving your country in a war is honourable, but when Sharnie' s older sister, Cas, meets a returned soldier and stars getting involved in anti-war protests, a rift in their family begins to show. Sharnie would usually turn to her grandma for support, but lately Gran' s been forgetting things. Can she find her own way in this brave new world?
