When Annie’s parents decide to move from New York City to a small town upstate, Annie is pretty sure that it’s her fault for telling her principal that they live in the wrong school district. Her brother Ted hates her, but her best friend Millie has promised to keep in touch. Life in Clover Gap is very different for everyone in Annie’s family, and Annie’s not sure that she will make friends, since she’s so quiet. But there are some interesting surprises in store, not the least of which is a letter of termination that Annie and Ted find in the attic with their dad’s name on it.
