Elaine’s family has just moved back to Grand Rapids; Michigan. Living in a new house on a different street promises to be lots of fun! Elaine and her sister; Marcia; hope that there will be nice kids in their new neighborhood; and there are—except for Monica. Even though they try to like her; they just can’t. But shy; quiet Joanie from down the street does something that changes everything. Camp meeting is the highlight of every summer; and this year is no different. Meeting up with old friends; weathering a fierce thunderstorm; and waging war on unsuspecting camp guards add to the fun. The excitement doesn’t stop once the family returns home: a tornado shakes the house; Elaine takes a trip to the hospital; and someone must save Marcia from drowning. Winter brings heaps of snow; and the girls build a snow fort down the street. A snowball fight breaks out—girls against boys! At a family reunion; Uncle Steve recalls a long-forgotten tale of a mysterious stranger and tire tracks in the snow. This is Elaine’s story—the fifth in a series of six true stories about Adventist girls: Ann; Marilla; Grace; Ruthie; Elaine; and Erin. Elaine was born in 1961. Her daughter; Erin; is a teenager today. When Erin was born; Grandmother Ruth wanted her to know that she was a sixth-generation Adventist; as well as a thirteenth-generation American girl whose ancestors helped to establish their country; the United States of America. But most of all she wanted Erin to know that her greatest heritage is that she is a child of the heavenly King—royalty indeed—and so are you!
