Two kids cover up their tracks and hole up in their family's backwoods cabin, The Hideaway, instead of going to overnight camp. Addle, about twelve, and Clay, nine, are long-separated brother and sister, recently reunited. Their on-a-whim summer adventure shapes up into a grand scheme and they manage beautifully--scaring off local raccoon hunters, making chocolate pudding, surviving a storm and a flood. Two orphaned raccoons, welcomed to their cabin, provide an unlabored contrast to the temporarily-parentless children who don't find out until the end that the local storekeeper's been looking out for them all along. Cute.
