Charlotte and Ben live many miles away from each other. Charlotte is in Pennsylvania, and Ben is in Louisiana. They meet through an online version of Scrabble and get to know each other through messages in the app and eventually phone calls. Both of them feel out of place in their schools, and both are dealing with changing family situations. They each learn to lean on each other and help each other get through the difficult middle school years.
