Summary
When April, Finn and Joe Peski come home from school one day to find their mother missing, they are forced to go and live with their dad. They haven't seen him in years, and to make matters worse, he lives in a small country town - how will these city kids cope? In the country everything is green, the air is crisp and clear and the sky is a sharper shade of blue. In fact, everything is so nice it makes the kids uncomfortable. However, with the challenges of a new school, new friends, attempted kidnappings and the annual cockroach race, the Peski kids soon realise that life in a country town might not be quite as boring as they imagined!
