"On days like this I imagine I've woken up in heaven. Squeaky brings me to the first garage sale, where there are a hundred people lined up outside. I smile at the nice lady by the garage door, and she lets me in early. Under a pile of books I find an original copy of the Declaration of Independence. Fireworks go off inside my head when I see the price tag-25¢. I pay the lady and race back home, Squeaky begging me the whole time to tell him what I bought. Mom gives me a record-breaking hug. I sell it for a million dollars, and Mom and I retire to Florida and swim in blue water with brightly colored fish."

Cooper and his mom run an antique business out of the old barn behind their house. Actually, Cooper does most of the work, since his mom tends to get lost in her own thoughts. He rides his bike, Squeaky, to garage sales looking for treasures, sets the resale prices, and orders the groceries. There's never much money left over after he pays the electric bill, and he dreams of finding something spectacular-but really, he and his mom are doing okay. At least he's better at sniffing out the antiques than Mr. Shepherd-that's the director of the historical museum, who gets to garage sales a few minutes too late.

Then one day Cooper comes home with an item he's never seen before, and everything changes.
