Dallas and Florida are known as the 'trouble twins.' They've been bounced between countless foster homes and the Boxton Creek Home for Kids. Consequently, they trust no one but each other and they expect the worst from the world. Tiller and Sairy are an energetic older couple hungry for one more big adventure, but they can't agree where to go. When they invite the twins to share their adventures, both Tiller and Sairy and the twins learn some new things about the world and relationships.
As usual, Sharon Creech creates a light and entertaining story that contains subtle, but profound life lessons. This is a great book for ages 8 and up, but it also fun to read together as a family. The characters have so much personality and their dialogue is perfect for reading out loud.
