Leslie Jane Conly's Newbery Honor winner is a heart-warming tale of how one boy's view of the world is changed.
"Racso, a brash and boastful little rodent, is making his way to Thorn Valley, determined to learn how to read and write and become a hero. His bragging and lies get him off to a bad start, but a crisis gives him the opportunity to prove his mettle. . . ".--Booklist. IRA/CBC Children's Choice; Booklist Children's Editors' Choice.

Shana and Cody are outdoor kids; they don't belong in Laglade, Maryland. But that's the suburb Mama uprooted them to, after Daddy left home. There's only one good thing about Laglade: Mama has found them a cabin near a river in the woods where they can go on the weekends. Soon Shana convinces Mama that she and Cody can stay in the cabin on their own if they promise to be good and stay out of trouble. But trouble takes the unexpected shape of a cat, a gun, a few lies, and a cantankerous old forest ranger who doesn't like Cody and Shana messing around with his river--until the day he's ready to go over the falls for the last time. Jane Leslie Conly tells a riveting story about trust and change, hidden strengths and hidden treasures, in this gripping middle-grade novel.
