Tess Brooks is a carefree eleven year old that loves her life on Bethsaida Island. But that all may change if the island can't get enough students to support the school staying open. The residents come up with the answer. Several families foster children and Tess's family does its part by bringing 13 year old Aaron into their home. Nothing makes Aaron happy. All that he wants is to be with his mother. He and Tess scheme a plan for him to see his mother while he is performing at a community concert and the results are disastrous. Can Aaron find his place in the family and make the island his home?
