Twelve-year-old Skye McPhee was banished from her home.  After her older brother was almost killed in a car crash and now needs full-time care while he recovers from his brain injury, Skye is shipped off to her grandmother’s in California.  She keeps telling herself, “It’s only temporary” so that she can cope with moving away from her friends and school.  But as the months go by, Skye becomes comfortable in her new life until some kids at school tease and bully Skye and her friends.
Find out what happens when the bullies and Skye’s group try to take revenge on each other.  (New Hampshire Great Stone Face nominee, 2009-2010)
