About the Book
Flipping his grandfather's Adirondack property seems so easy that 22-year-old Ray Marks takes a month off college to do an earth science project and fix the farm at the same time.

It's a solid place, and being smart, honest and a logical thinker - what more could he need? Alarmed when rumors suggest someone is trying to take the farm for free, Ray and a local high school helper scramble to save the family inheritance and in the process, protect a small piece of nature and the environment.

The novel is a YA, coming-of-age teenage adventure, portraying the values of the next generation struggling in a diverse community that is not always on their side.
