"Why can’t we be like a normal family?"
When twelve-year-old Jenny arrives home a week before school ends, she learns her summer plans have been turned upside down. Her brother Branch is missing, and she must compete in the TriTopTechRun in upstate New York. She will need all her sassy traits, magical powers, jokes, and a bit of luck to keep her balance as she battles for Earth’s survival against climate change and the evil ShrinkWithers. Connections are made and broken and wits are challenged with real and fantastical dangers.
Will the children be able to make a difference before it’s too late? Who should they trust? Is it possible to grow up in two weeks? What is the connection between a safety pin, an octopus tattoo, and a sesame seed? This fast-paced adventure will remind every kid that they can make a difference when it matters most.
