It takes a lot of stories to make a neighborhood. New neighbors add their tales, families multiply, and death subtracts. But dividing by zero might blow it all apart unless a little child can lead them.
Meet Troy, the garage mechanic’s son, Lydia, the rich man’s daughter, Amethyst with her remarkable cat, and the curiously accented Andrea. Old Abigail knows more than anyone else but doesn’t speak. Meanwhile in Paradise Park, a middle-aged man keeps watch over autistic Amelia, who keeps getting lost. Pastor Bill mends people; Peter mends cars. And someone or something’s going to break.
