Lets just say that sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures. And honestly, it doesnt even matter.

But after a summer of fun on the treehouse groundsexploring the meadow, swimming in the stream, and spying on great-great aunt Lydiathings get complicated. With her new school friends all calling mansions home, Rosie decides that living in a treehouse is more than a little pathetic.

This was a very good junior book, with a unique circumstance of a family living in a treehouse.

A lesson learned is about how lies can catch you up, and honesty is the best policy.

Kids growing up, almost teens, have a tough time trying to fit in.

A very good read! :)
