Book DescriptionEleven-year-old Bailey Fish, unexpectedly sent from Florida by a traveling mother to live with her grandmother in Virginia, must adjust to new surroundings. Feeling abandoned, Bailey is confronted by a neighborhood bully, whose father is out to get Bailey's environmentalist grandmother, Sugar. Bailey's life is further complicated when her teacher asks her to help the bully's little sister with reading. Bailey draws courage and inspiration from stories about the family's "wild women," including a WWI spy, to have adventures of her own. She learns about historic gold mining and what home really is. This is the first in a series. Drawings by Christopher Grotke.
