In this moving, witty novel, author Maureen Leurck explores the intricacies and joys of renovation and rediscovery—as one woman’s improvement project promises to transform much more than a home . . . People keep a house alive, not the other way around. Alex Proctor has seen the truth of this in every empty, rundown property she’s bought and renovated since her divorce almost three years ago. She’s also experienced the thrill of making each one into a home. Her newest project is a dilapidated, century-old house just a few blocks from Geneva Lake, Wisconsin. Time and neglect, along with rats and raccoons, have ravaged it inside and out. Only Alex can see the beauty of what it once was and might become again. In just a few weeks—by the time the cicadas make their scheduled reappearance after seventeen years underground—the house should be ready to sell. In the meantime, there are construction disasters, and surprises, to contend with. Amid overgrown grounds and rooms brimming with debris, Alex finds treasures—pocket doors, hardwood floors hidden beneath layers of linoleum and grime—and carved initials that reveal a long-ago love story involving Alex’s elderly neighbor, Elsie, and another cicada summer. At the same time, Alex finds herself searching for a way to reconcile her new life with lingering feelings for her ex-husband. For so long she felt sure that moving on was the only option, but maybe this house, and everything she’s learning in it, could give Alex room for a second chance . . . “A captivating novel about the power of redemption.” —Jen Lancaster, New York Times bestselling author

The summer has been mystical. Will, one of the handsomest boys in town, has been dating Dani and she prays every night that he’ll ask her to go steady before he heads off to college. Her parents are skeptical because Will is older than Dani, but Grandma Livvy is full of advice. “Boys like their kissing. If you want to hold him you got to give him plenty of....” “Olivia!” Dad’s voice boomed through the night. “That’s enough!” Grandma Livvy whispered, “You listen to me. I know how to handle men.” But Grandma had gone through four men and was on the lookout for the fifth. Dani didn’t want to go through boy after boy. She just wanted Will. He said he loved her, but did he really? By the time Will left for college, Grandma Livvy had solved her problem. Dani goes to bed at night listening to the cicadas sing, remembering the happy summer and hoping Will’s love would stand the test of being apart. Surprisingly she solves her own dilemma in a way she’d never have thought possible.

But in order to preserve everyone's youthful vitality they must undergo an operation before passing into adulthood that locks their body in the form of a pre-adolescent eleven year old.
