Ben and Jody may be miles apart, but they are two of a kind.

Ben is a country kid. He lives on a quiet farm, where he wakes to the peaceful sounds of cows mooing and birds chirping.

Jody is a city kid. She lives in an apartment building, where her mornings begin with honking horns and wailing sirens.

Their lives are nothing alike--or are they?
