Sometimes even the smallest thing can change your life forever.
A squeaking sound outside her bedroom leads eleven-year-old Nell to a baby squirrel abandoned in her yard. Nell and her younger brothers end up saving two wild squirrels that appear to be orphaned. With the help of some online research and a new friend, Nell learns how to care for the squirrels, but she also learns that she shouldn’t try to do this on her own. Still, if Nell, who is homeschooled, has the time and devotion, why shouldn’t she keep the squirrels? She loves them, and they need her—don’t they? Nell is willing to do anything to keep her new pets safe, even if it involves telling a few lies. . . .
