Ben's life has been upended. He's leaving Atlanta. His mom's having a baby. He desperately wants a dog. Who said being twelve is easy?
Meet Ben Washington. He's about to leave the place he loves for a new town—population: near nothing. Sixth grade is universally bumpy. And starting school in a pocket-sized town where no one looks like you is going to be an even bigger challenge.
Is there a friend for Ben in Radnor Falls? What is he going to do about the trio of bullies who seem far too old to still be in middle school? And what about the mystery of "Spooky Fred," the town outsider? What has Fred done, and what will Ben do when he finds out? Will Ben come to love the slime green house with creaky floors and attic bedroom? Read this story of friendship, faith, and finding God in the hard spaces of life to find out.
