The words echo in Ross Cooper’s head. “Get out of my sight,” his mother said; so fourteen-year-old Ross took to the road. But it’s 1933 – the Great Depression. Families are pushed to their limits and hope is necessary to survive. And Ross can’t muster much hope. After taking shelter in a barn for the night, he awakens to blazing bushels of hay-and is then seen running from the fire. The barn is one of many that have been burned, and now Ross is the prime suspect. Luckily, he finds a haven with a loving family while he searches for the real barn burner. Can he clear his good name in time?
