Book Summary: Callie’s mother has chained herself to the neighbor’s tree and is living inside the tree house. She refuses to come down until her neighbor, Mr. Wilson, agrees to leave the tree standing. Soon reporters arrive to interview Callie about her mother’s protest. Callie doesn’t want to talk to anyone. More chaos ensues when Callie’s grandmother invites the “Singing Grannies” to help save the tree, Mr. Wilson’s biker friends come to his aid, and Callie’s friends show up to try to get themselves on tv. Callie needs to figure out how to get her mother to come down from the tree so that her life can return to normal.
