The plan will demand the all-out efforts of the whole family, including Jake, who has managed to survive his first year in their home school. The whole thing seems like a good idea . . .

. . . untilin the midst of the ordinary chaos of temperamental artists; talented, intense, headstrong campers; a dead possum; and rampaging goatsanonymous, threatening notes begin mysteriously appearing in the Applewhites' roadside mailbox.
