Description

The lyrical and moving middle-grade debut from YA author Kody Keplinger!

Twelve-year-old Nola Sutton has been best friends and neighbors with the Swift boys for practically her whole life. There's the youngest, Kevin, who never stops talking; the oldest, Brian, who's always kind and calm; and then there's Canaan, the ringleader and Nola's best-best friend. Together, they have a summer of fun adventures planned.

But then everything changes overnight.

When the Swifts' daddy leaves without even saying good-bye, it completely destroys the boys, and all Nola can do is watch. Kevin stops talking and Brian is never around. Even Canaan is drifting away from Nola - hanging out with the neighborhood bullies instead of her. Nola just wants things to go back to the way they were -- the way they've always been.

Can Nola and the Swift boys survive this summer with their friendships intact, or has everything fallen apart for good?
