For as long as he can remember, eleven-year-old Mash has felt trapped in a city he despises. Mash feels like he is surrounded by a zillion people and noises all the time. The city is suffocating him.
Unfortunately, life at home with his mother is even less tranquil. She’s always drinking her “special drinks” and acting a fool, prompting Mash to escape further into his obsession with all things aeronautical. If only he could fly away from it all…but not before the upcoming air show - the air show that may change his life forever.
When Mash crosses paths with Juniper, an eccentric artist who once dumped 10,000 rubber duckies over Niagara Falls, Mash becomes an unwilling accomplice to the most spectacular art stunt Juniper has ever conceived. A project so cataclysmic and daring, it puts Mash’s entire life at risk.
As the opposite worlds of Mash and Juniper collide, the unlikely duo meets for an unexpected event and a surprise ending that will have you cheering for them both.
