Ronnie and her hyperactive brother are pawned off on their grandfather while their mother recuperates from an injury incurred from chasing a squirrel. Their grandfather, Pop, is off on an adventure in a camper, seeking a way to get rich using the wind. Ronnie’s brother, Gee, is a handful and Ronnie spends most of her time keeping him from killing himself or destroying the world. Just when Pop is ready to turn around and return the two kids to their mother, Gee disappears and the search for Gee helps Pop and Ronnie become friends. ( )

Twelve-year-old Ronnie loves organization, especially because her brother has attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, but traveling with their grandfather who is investigating wind power in Kansas brings some pleasant, if chaotic, surprises.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440421659, Paperback)

VERONICA SPARKS IS hitting the road and she is going to shake the dust of her little town off her shoes and see the world!

Well, someday. For now, she’s hitting the road in an RV with her cantankerous grandfather and her hyperactive little brother. Ronnie’s grandfather is a wind prospector, and they are heading across Kansas in search of a good stiff breeze. Okay, so it’s not the trip of her dreams. But with her newly affirmatized attitude, Ronnie figures that traveling somewhere is better than traveling nowhere. That is, until her little brother manages to disappear into thin air.

On one weird, windy, wild ride across the prairie, Ronnie discovers that there are some things you just can’t plan for or seize control of—but that sometimes a little chaos is just what a girl needs.
