This book took me the longest because I didn't want Piper to move again. But it was time. As a Navy brat, that was my life and that's Piper's life, too. I decided to move Piper to Norfolk, Virginia because that's where I lived for awhile. Once I had a new friend that introduced me to stamp collecting. That friend inspired me to write about Piper's new friend, Arizona.
