Cat Gladwell (Caterpillar) has always been the one to make her brother, Chicken, happy. She is one of the few people who knows what he needs. Ever since their father passed away and their mother having to work extra to keep their family afloat, Cat has been the superglue holding her family together.
But when Cat and Chicken's summer trip doesn't go according to plan, they end up spending 3 weeks on Gingerbread Island with their grandparents they never knew existed. Cat is curious and wants to know the truth behind her family's secret past. As Cat gets to know the island better, she starts to understand her family better, too. Slowly, Cat's days on Gingerbread Island become filled with fireflies, fishing, and friendship, giving her hope that this could be the summer to bring her family back together again.
