When twelve-year-old Lulu moves with her family to the tiny town of Pierpoint, Maine, she expects exciting new adventures. But Lulu soon learns that the only thing exciting about Pierpoint is the pier. It's the only place to play, the only place to go, and the only place to be.

As the pier starts to deteriorate, Lulu and her friends mount a campaign to save it. They write letters to the mayor, stage rallies, and even put on a play. But their efforts are in vain. The end of the pier is coming, and with it, the end of an era.; 8vo; 229 pages; Signed by Author.
