In this pitch-perfect middle grade adventure, twelve-year-old Dagmar must endure a summer living off-the-grid with her family in a tiny home.
Dagmar's summer is off to a terrible start. After a business deal gone bad, her family faces eviction from their Oakland apartment, and she's forced to move with her dad, her stepmom, and her annoying five-year-old half brother into a tiny house, which they park among the towering redwoods of Northern California.
As Dagmar explores the woods around her new, (hopefully) temporary home, she discovers they are living next door to an eccentric tech billionaire, who lives in a smart home that looks like an alien spaceship, and his very unusual family. There's the woodsman who sets homemade booby traps all over the forest, and the New Age hippie who meditates to whale songs in an isolation tank. And then there's the billionaire's son, Blake, who has everything he could ever wish for--except maybe a friend.
