Synopsis (from book)

Don Schmidt knows his name was changed from Stanley when he was very little. And he knows he has a sister who died of scarlet fever when she was fifteen.  But these things and other odd details of his life don’t add up.

Don’s family lives on a chicken farm on Horse Island. There isn’t much that hasn’t changed in their life time.
