Was it her mom’s idea to start a neighborhood newspaper? Suzanne, a 13-year-old girl, earns a night in jail, the unexpected consequence of good intentions. She couldn’t have done it though, without help from a little brother, a computer, and a grouchy neighbor. And she wouldn’t have a lot to look forward to afterward without the support of an elderly neighbor with famous connections.

The book’s cover depicts what Clover Street might have looked like from one end of the street. The modern-day cowboy, the baby buggy, and the — uh — large-scale rodent each, by turns, make appearances in the story.
