In a small New York City apartment lives eleven-year-old Ali Banning, carefree until she learns that when school ends she and her mother will be moving to a little house at the base of a mountain in California.
Ali has never lived in a house nor been to a mountain, and she’s scared. But for the first time in her life she can be out on her own, an impossibility for a city girl.
As she explores her new surroundings, Ali discovers that there is something special about the mountain and its creatures. When she crosses paths with a neglected old dog, she unknowingly begins the adventure of a lifetime.
Four lives are intertwined that summer: an osprey, an abandoned dog, a special rainbow trout, and Ali. Whether it is destiny or the mountain’s magic that bring them all together, miracles happen. And someone emerges a hero.
