Wealthy orphan June Sparrow and her best friend, a miniature pig named Indigo Bunting, have always been just fine on their own. But on June’s twelfth birthday, she loses her fortune and is forced to move to a small, boring town with an aunt she’s never even met. Then one day, June finds a mysterious Penny Book that her mother used to keep. She is instantly intrigued by what her mother called the Big One, the rarest and most valuable of all pennies. Finding it could be June’s ticket back to New York and her old life. But the most surprising mystery of all may be what brought June to Red Bank in the first place --- and what is most valuable to her in the end.
