"Mom said starting over would be an adventure, so I imagined a tropical island with palm trees and buried treasure. Not this. All the houses on Thirty-third Street were old and run down, but the one with the For Sale sign was the worst." So begins a girl's new life in a new neighborhood. She and her mother quickly realize they can't do everything alone--the only way to make things better is to ask for help. They both learn that when you reach out to your neighbors, people will help. As the house gets rebuilt, so does their sense of belonging.
