Meet Lyssa Greenfield
fight with my brother."
No big deal. After
all, what brothers and sisters don't fight? It's innocent enough.
Definitely not worth sending two kids halfway around the world for Charting
A New Course.
But when it comes
to sibling warfare, the Greenfields boast a major-league resume: slashed
bicycle tires, melted computer diskettes, incinerated school projects,
sweaters unraveled to a ball of yarn, a milkshake full of Tabasco, cracked
ribs, and a broken nose. The last two items on this list end in an unplanned
trip to the hospital.
The next trip for
Lyssa and her brother is planned twenty-one hours on planes,
and then the Phoenix. Their mission: Learn to get along, or else.
In a million years,
no one could predict what "or else" would come to mean.
