Summary
Returning to school after the summer in which her best friend Tim died of cancer, eleven-year-old Penelope finds her life complicated by the fact that her father has become the school janitor. Penelope wishes she were starting fifth grade with her best friend, Tim, who recently died of cancer. When everyone pairs off with friends from last year, Penelope is alone, with only her dad, the new janitor, to keep her company. Dad means well, but he keeps embarrassing her by acting more like a kid than a janitor. To ease her loneliness at school, Penelope begins writing secretly to Tim on "While You Were Out" notes. But when her messages mysteriously begin to be answered, Penelope realizes that she's not alone in missing Tim. This funny and moving story offers hope and comfort to children who have lost loved ones
