“Sibley Carter is a moron and a world-class jerk.”

When 12-yr-old Julian Carter-Li intercepts an angry e-mail message intended for his high-powered uncle, he finds himself caught up in the fight to save some of the oldest trees in the world.

Over the course of the summer, normally cautious Julian will do many things he would never have dreamed of doing before:

·         Promise to help a girl he’s never met,
·         Milk a goat,
·         Take a vow of silence,
·         Mastermind an office break-in,
·         Live in a tree,
·         And, most important, stand up for what he believes.

This funny, fast-paced adventure shows the power of determined individuals, no matter what their age, to change the world.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2011)
