Charlotte's mum has just moved the family across the country to live in Walnut Grove, "childhood home of pioneer author Laura Ingalls Wilder." Mum's idea is that the spirit of Laura Ingalls will help her write a bestselling book. But Charlotte knows better: Walnut Grove is just another town where Mum can avoid responsibility. And this place is worse than everywhere else the family has lived - it's freezing in the winter, it's small with nothing to do, and the people talk about Laura Ingalls all the time.
Charlotte's convinced her family will not be able to make a life on the prairie - until the spirit of Laura Ingalls starts getting to her, too.
