Curley is a teen who lives on a mountain. His entire life was there. Now, a mining company is threatening to take it away. Can he use his highly advanced vocabulary to save it, or will the Big Coal Mining Co. blow his mountain to smithereens?
I really liked this book. To me it showed that the power of words is more powerful than a sword. When a whole town comes together, great things can happen.
