The Fitzgerald-Trouts, a band of related children with a mix of parents, live on a lush, tropical island and sleep in their car. Resourceful and devoted to each other, Kim, Kimo, Toby, and Pippa attend school, take baths in the ocean, and eat local fish and fruit. Their moms, occupied with careers as a country music star and a stockbroker, drop by on occasion to leave money and check on the kids. The children do dream of having real house, however, and may just have the spunk to make their wish come true. A quirky adventure that will appeal to readers age 9+ who’d love to try living on their own.
