When Eliza Jane Murphy--line leader, captain of the worm rescue team--impulsively pockets a sparkly green stone from her classroom's "Exploring Green" display table, her heart crumples.

But when she discovers that nearly everyone in her family took something once in their lives--from her baby brother and mom, to her nana with her sausage-stealing dog--Eliza overcomes her shame to make things right. A hilarious and heartfelt story about stealing and finding the courage to do the right thing. (Northsouth Books)
