A moving story of finding yourself in the face of big changes--ideal for fans of "J"udy Blume," Fish in a Tree, and Counting by 7s" To make some extra money, twelve-year-old Missy and her older brother Patrick get summer jobs picking blueberries at a local farm. For Missy, though, it's about more than just money-- it's the perfect distraction from the fact that her two best friends have gone off to summer camp without her and that her dad is getting remarried. She'd love for everything to stay the way it is, but she soon discovers that the summer is full of secrets: the secrets to making her family feel whole again; the secrets to keeping her two best friends from changing and leaving her behind; the secrets of a local farm's blood feud; and most importantly, the secrets of blueberries. "A sampling of classic summer adventure."--The New York Times "This tale is as sweet as summer blueberries."--Detroit Free Press
