From the Back Cover

The return of Roger King—world-famous geologist—turns the King farm topsy-turvy with excitement. But a boyhood feud between Roger and brother Alec wreaks havoc on the homecoming, and sparks begin to fly—not just between the King grownups, but between cousins Felix and Andrew as well.

Adapted from the award-winning, internationally acclaimed television series, the magical adventures of “The Story Girl” continue—in the spirit and tradition of Lucy Maud Montgomery—for a new generation of young readers.
