Courtney (andforamoment) | 297 comments Key things I remember
-There was a mom, dad two girls and a boy
-It was in America
-The oldest girl made friends with a boy who had a secret
-The boy's little brother had died and he blames himself
-The girl's siblings I can't remember which one hurts themselves badly on an electric saw or something. The boy jumps in and helps.

Things that I may have right but I'm not sure
-I THINK they moved for one of the parents jobs
-It may have been part of a series

Think Block Island, or the Channel Islands. People live there but take a ferry to the main land for school, work, shopping, medical, etc...


Courtney (andforamoment) | 297 comments Catalina. The other islands are not inhabitable but you can visit them. One has wild horses.
