Her parents don't know it, but 12-year-old Trapp plans to stay on her great-grandparents' farm forever. She can't bear the thought of leaving Iowathe only home she's ever knownfor New York City. The city is a place for tourists, not a place to live. The Hatfield Farm is home
. For now, she has the whole summer to help with the harvesting and canning, to work on her fastball...and to figure out how to break the news to her folks.
But the day Trapp's pitch puts a hole in a barn wall is the day she discovers a long-kept secret in her family's past, and afterward she just can't look at home in the same way. Maybe moving on doesn't always mean leaving behind what you love.
