Summary
  • Roy Eberhardt has moved with his family so often he literally has lost count of the number of times he has had to change schools. Roy ought to be used to being the new kid at school by now, but making the switch from Montana to Florida proves to be a major challenge. While Roy quickly becomes the target of school bully, he is befriended by Beatrice Leep, a spunky girl with enough nerve to stand up to Dana, and her brother Mullet Fingers. Beatrice and Mullet share a big secret with Roy, they have a hidden hideaway where they look after a flock of endanged owls. That is of little concern to Chuck Muckle, a top executive from the Mother Paula's All-American Pancake House chain, who is planning to build a new restaurant in the hollow where the owls nest. The three kids are determined to find a way to save the owls and have a plan. They have uncovered some evidence of some dirty doings tied in to the pancake house
  • Roy Eberhardt is the only child in a family that is constantly relocating for his father's work. At 14, he's once again the new kid, this time in the tiny Florida beach town of Coconut Cove. Predictably, a bully nicknames him "Cowgirl" and proceeds to torture him. Unpredictably, a barefoot blonde boy who runs alongside the school bus every morning fascinates him. Tough-as-nails girl jock Beatrice befriends Roy, helps with the bully, and is revealed as the stepsister of the blonde boy, Mullet. The teens band together, fighting an improbable crusade to protect a group of endangered burrowing owls from being plowed under by a greedy pancake-house magnate. They aren't hindered at all by the hapless construction-site manager, the local Keystone Kop, or the dastardly Mayor
