Willa just started school again and everyone in her class has come up with clever ideas for their back-to-school projects. Even her best friends Lena and Sarah are preparing something different: a Double-Dutch demonstration. At first Willa thinks her father’s fabulous raspberry torte will be perfect, but at the last minute, the raspberries don’t cooperate! Just in the nick of time she realizes the best idea is in her own barnyard: Starbuck! She’ll show her class how to groom him, something she’s an expert at!

It’s the week of the annual pony swim and Willa and Ben are excited! Misty Inn is fully booked for the days leading up to the swim and the auction of the foals, which takes place the following day. As if the island’s biggest event isn’t exciting enough, the Dunlaps get news that a travel critic/writer will be staying at the inn during that week. The kids are determined to show the special guest just how nice Misty Inn can be, but will they be able to prove it when they don’t even know who the critic is?

Misty Inn is up and running, and the Dunlaps have a full house. Willa is thrilled that Kate, her best friend from Chicago, is going to come to Chincoteague for a visit. But it’s been a whole year since they’ve seen each other, and Willa soon realizes their friendship is not as easy as it had once been. Adding to the tension is the fact that a Chincoteague friend, Sarah Starling, is away at camp for the week, not to mention the fact that Ben seems to disappear early in the morning and not show up again until dinner. So Willa is on her own to figure out how to start anew with her oldest friend.
