Can one person really make a difference? 

Lucy Moon is the kind of girl who loudly supports animal rights -- during hunting season. She wears a woven hat made of hemp in support of third world workers. Lucy Moon is the kind of girl who spots injustice and isn't afraid to fight it. So when classmates land a trip to the police station for sledding on Wiggins Hill and the local paper refuses to report it -- or the role Miss Ilene Viola Wiggins, the richest woman in town, plays in the arrest -- Lucy launches a campaign to fight against corruption in her hometown -- and for sledding rights on Wiggins Hill.
