With frostbitten fingers, sleepless nights and sore muscles, 14-year-old Jackson Jones and his posse of cousins discover the lost art of winging it when they take over an orchard of 300 wild apple trees. They know nothing about pruning or irrigation or pest control, but figure it out they musta€”if they are to avoid losing $8, 000 (because of an unfair contract). With spot illustrations for mechanical-loving readersa€”the gears of a tractor, a plow with disksa€”and with mathematical calculations of the great mount of money to be earned, this novel has the sort of can-do spirt and sense of earned independence not often found in today's fiction.After the green apple experience, Lisa became very upset about what she called a€œwasting apples.a€ a€œAll the apple throwing and eating till youa#39;re sick is like throwing money away, a€ she lectured. a€œThink about how much each apple is worth.
