Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Trevor Frederick Ackerman can't stand another summer with his confusing tangle of step-parents, step-brothers, and step-sisters. So instead, his mother sends him to a remote area of New England to stay with two elderly aunts.

As the plane takes off, Freddie feels everything familiar slip away. Despite his initial fears, he finds that he is comfortable in the eccentric aunts' rambling house. Soon, he has made a new friend in the nearby village and, in a mysterious book, he discovers something surprising and wonderful.

Hadley Irwin, also author of Kim/Kimi is really the popular writing team of Lee Hadley and Ann Irwin. Together, they create stories that explore the changes young people face as they move into adulthood. The Original Freddie Ackerman, filled with gentle wit, was chosen by School Library Journal as a Best Book.
