EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT THIS SUMMER Carrie has always loved spending summers at her grandparents' home in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Not even the Depression, so much on her mind back home in the city, can change the safe, carefree feeling she gets from the old farmhouse where her grandfather has lived all his life. But this summer, shortly after Carrie arrives, she finds out that the government is planning to create a national park that will include Grandpa's mountain, and the state of Virginia is buying up land for the park -- and evicting the people who live there. Grandpa is determined to save his home, and Carrie believes he'll win his battle. As Grandpa's increasingly solitary struggle drags on, Carrie learns a lot about the importance of fighting for what you believe in -- and knowing when it's time to move on.
