Clandestine e-mail exchanges, secret trips, fake press releases, and a tree-house standoff are among the clever stunts and pranks the kid heroes pull off in this exciting ecological adventure.
"Sibley Carter is a moron and a world-class jerk!" When Julian Carter-Li intercepts an angry e-mail message meant for his high-powered uncle, it sets him on the course to stop an environmental crime!
His uncle's company plans to cut down some of the oldest and last California redwood trees, and its up to Julian, and a ragtag group of friends, to figure out a way to stop them. This action-packed debut novel shows the power of determined individuals, no matter what their age, to stand up to environmental wrongdoing.

    Amazing story, great information about Redwood forests packed into a fun adventure story about a few brave 11-year-olds. They shine a positive light on homeschooling families. definitely recommend; it's a long book so maybe a 5th-6th grade reading level or a parent can read aloud to 6+ year old. Great story.
