About the Book

There's no reasoning with Owen.The island cottage where he and his family have spent the last ten summers "must" be preserved. And he's going to do it. Never mind that bulldozer stands outside, ready to move in and level the place for a modern hotel. Never mind that summer's over and Owen's family is hurrying to catch the last ferry -- or that school is starting -- or that "nobody" sees it his way. Alone, fourteen-year-old Owen is going to stay and save the beautiful place others call ugly.

First Sentence
