Sometimes even the smallest thing can change your life forever. A squeaking sound outside Nell's bedroom leads her to a baby squirrel abandoned in her yard. Nell and her younger brothers end up saving two wild squirrels that appear to be orphaned. With the help of some online research and a new friend, Nell learns how to care for the squirrels, but she also learns that she should not try to do this on her own. Still, if Nell has the time and devotion, why shouldn't she raise the squirrels? She loves them, and they need her —don't they? Nell is willing to do anything to keep her new pets safe, even if involves telling a few lies. Author Kacy Cook has crafted a beautiful, classic debut novel about love, family, and nature that young readers will never forget.
