Roy Eberhardt is the only child in a family that is constantly relocating for his father's work. At 14, he's once again the new kid, this time in the tiny Florida beach town of Coconut Cove. Predictably, a bully nicknames him "Cowgirl" and proceeds to torture him. Unpredictably, a barefoot blonde boy who runs alongside the school bus every morning fascinates him. Tough-as-nails girl jock Beatrice befriends Roy, helps with the bully, and is revealed as the stepsister of the blonde boy, Mullet. The teens band together, fighting an improbable crusade to protect a group of endangered burrowing owls from being plowed under by a greedy pancake-house magnate. They aren't hindered at all by the hapless construction-site manager, the local Keystone Kop, or the dastardly Mayor.
