Overview

Twelve-year old Bug is penniless and on the move again. Thanks to her dad's obsessive entrepreneurial streak, she finds herself fleeing the city under cover of darkness in search of a new hometown. Her arrival in rural Tichburg is especially noteworthy because her father has staked their future on a decrepit dump truck fill with unmatched running shoes that he plans to sell at Tichurg's Harvest Fair.

Luckily one of their first customers is Frogger, an easy-going country kid who convinces his skeptical new friend that there really can be life in the country -- if she can adapt to a different lifestyle. While her father busies himself with new ventures, Bug settles in to rural life with an overactive curiousity about everyone and everything in town.
