It's 1987 and Joseph Pullman and his parents have just moved to Maritime, Maryland. This is white-picket-fence America, but for fifteen-year-old Joseph the threat of violence at home is as unrelenting as the punishment he receives at school, and his mother is slowly slipping away from reality. Joseph forms an uneasy friendship with the awkward Dean Gillespie and the boys occupy themselves burying animal corpses at the Killing Tree. This is the summer the cicadas are due to come out of their seventeen-year hibernation and Joseph becomes convinced that their arrival will bring his salvation. Meanwhile, Mother is gone and Joseph's father has retreated to his basement workshop. When a local boy goes missing and is finally found unconscious in the woods, Maritime is shaken. Then a second boy disappears and the residents of the town are forced to confront the secrets of the Pullmans' house.

The year is 2450 C.E. and the world has enjoyed two centuries of peace. The population of the planet has stabilised at 3 billion following the devastating effects of climate change, famine, disease and wars that raged for nearly 200 years. One central government, the World Federation of Nations, administers the judicial needs of all nations through its General Assembly and funds scientific research dedicated to restoring the planet's fragile ecosystems. At a principal research facility located in Melbourne, Australia, a scientist is assaulted and vital data stolen from their computer records. Almost simultaneously, four other facilities around the world are similarly compromised. When murder impacts upon the course of events, Federation investigators realise they are dealing with a dark conspiracy that stretches across the globe. They enlist the support of the scientists and their sometimes capricious cats; mysterious creatures bred in special centres.

Common thought places cicadas as tree dwellers; these odd insects actually live most of their lives underground. This book details the bizarre life cycle of the cicada, including the deposit of hundreds of eggs on a tree branch and details of a species that can live 17 years. Fascinating fact boxes provide readers with more strange information, and fun graphic organizers aid understanding. Full-color photographs enhance easy-to-understand language and science content. Many species of cuckoo lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. After the young cuckoo hatches, it may eject the other babies from the nest so it can thrive.

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.
