Callie’s mother has chained herself to the neighbor’s tree and is living inside the tree house. She refuses to come down until the neighbor, Mr. Wilson, agrees to leave the tree standing. Soon reporters arrive, followed by an activist group called the singing Grannies and a gang of bikers—each group with their own wacky agenda. Callie doesn’t want to deal with any of them, but she needs to get her mother to come down from the tree so that her life can return to normal.

Why did everyone keep asking me how I felt? How did they expect me to feel? I felt rotten. I felt worried. I felt scared.
Scared about her falling and hurting herself.
And very very scared about what my friends would say when they found out what was going on.
How did I feel? What a dumb question.
