He was thirteen when his whole world was turned upside-down: Jake loves everything about his life in Chicago. That life changes dramatically when his parents decide to move the family away from the city violence to a campground in rural Minessota. To the rebellious young Jake, Minnesota seems like little more than loneliness, chores and mosquitoes... until he meets Peter - the boy across the river.
Peter has a ready smile, a simple charm and a steadfast faith built in part by the loss of his mother at an early age. He and Jake form a fast friendship that God uses to transform Jake's life in ways that Jake never could have imagined.
