Review: Auggie lives with her grandfather who is a trash hauler. As she begins a new school year in a different school, she suddenly becomes aware that some students have far more affluent lives than she and her little group of friends. When a beautification project begins, her less wealthy part of town is targeted, and the problem solving begins. Auggie and her grandfather discover hidden talents through recycled-object sculptures that they create and sell in this genuine feel-good story.
