"As if simply being fourteen-years-old weren't bad enough -- what with the usual teenage angst and uncertainty, Vicky Austin's always comforting and reliable home life is changing completely. Her brother John is going off to college in the fall. Maggy, an orphan taken in by the Austins two years ago, has gone to live with her legal guardian. And the rest of Vicky's family is moving from their quiet house in the country to the heart of New York City. But before the big move, the entire Austin family is taking a meandering trip across the country in their station wagon, stopping to camp along the way, with no set schedule and not a single night of camping experience among them. Wild animal attacks. Life-threatening natural disasters. Cute boys on the prowl. Anything can happen in the great outdoors"--P. [4] of cover

This is the first book I've read in the "Austin" series. It was an ok read - not that compelling but more of a pedantic storyline of how Vicky is growing up. The writing style is a little too pastoral for my tastes but if you are looking for an enjoyable and low-key book, this is the story for you.
