Publisher Synopsis:

Haley Moon’s thirteenth birthday is supposed to be special - she’s finally a teenage! But instead of eating a fancy birthday dinner and enjoying her presents, Haley is watching her mother flip out. As in break down. As in check herself into the hospital. Haley’s older brother, Otis, is no help, and Haley’s worried about who he’s spending time with.

Trying to deal with her mother’s breakdown and her brother’s shady friends, Haley throws herself into her summer job: helping a music teacher clear his backyard of years of debris and clutter. As life becomes more and more confusing for Haley, her job cleaning Jackson’s garden helps her sort through her feelings. Thanks to his wise words and friendship, she comes to see how fortunate she is, despite everything that’s happened. Soon she finds herself agreeing that Jackson’s swept dirt yard, the result of all her hard work, really is a piece of heaven.
