The preventative solution: sabotage the realtor's tours with the help of best friends and a plan that has maximum stinkage potential.
The back-up plan: hang on to at least a little bit of life at Big Red by creating shoebox dioramas of each room.
But even with a full-scale assault, will her mission be a success? And if not, what will the diorama of Kate's future look like?
With a keen eye for capturing the moments that matter, acclaimed author Tara Altebrando explores the pain-and promise-of letting go.
