Cat knows her younger brother, Chicken, the best. She knows that he loves sharks. That he does not like loud noises, tags in his shirt, or being called Henry. And that sometimes he has bad days, when only a good back rub will calm hilm. Cat is proud to be the glue holding their family together ever since Daddy died and Mom has had to work extra hard to support them. When a summer trip doesn't go as planned, Cat and Chicken must spend three weeks with grandparents they've never met, in a place called Gingerbread Island. At first, she is wary of these strangers... How could they ever care for Chicken like she does? But life on the island feels different. It's easier, simpler, and Cat feels more like a kid than she has in a while. As she gets to know her grandparents, one thing is bothering Cat: Why haven't they been a part of her life before now? Beautifully honest and heartwarming, this story of family and forgiveness treats readers to a summer they'll never forget.
