"When his family moves to a rural area, Chase fights culture shock. . . . Animal rights activists and urban transplants will connect." -- BOOKLIST
Fourteen-year-old Chase Riley has just moved with his parents from Columbus, Ohio, to a farmhouse in the country, but it may as well be on another planet. For starters, there's a plague of cicadas, but that's nothing compared to the awesome appearance of deer in the woods -- or strapped to hunters' cars. Chase seeks refuge at his computer, blasting off droll commentary, until a freak accident involving his own dog changes everything. And that's when he begins devising The Plan.

She's been commuting fifteen minutes to work in Lexington all summer. She leaves before the cicadas really start up and hauls her butt home right before adry when they've shut up again.
