Finley is spending the summer with her grandparents -- who she's never met thanks to some big family secret -- while her parents decide whether they're getting divorced. But she convinces her cousins to join her in the Everwood, her imaginary world, in the woods behind their house. Fabulous writing drives this darker but happier version of Bridge to Terebithia.

When Luther crosses the Sarge one time too many, it's time to get out of Flint, along with his elderly roommate, Chester X, just as soon as he wraps up his winning science fair project.
