Life is full of adventure and happiness for 11-year-old Danny Parker on his beloved Parrot Island in Florida. But when his world is suddenly thrown into complete chaos, Danny must learn to adapt to new surroundings in Kansas. Will he accept them or is the lure of his island home to much for him to ignore?
This really is an exceptional book, not only for kids, but for those of us who have grandkids that age. The Florida/Kansas transition brings back memories for all of us. The way this book is written, you feel like you are right there with Danny. Great job-looking forward to more!--Daniel, Texas
This is one of the best "coming of age" novels for kids that I've read in a long time!--Marie, Kansas
