The summer she's 12, the same year that Cabbage Patch dolls are popular, that Sally Ride becomes the first American woman in space, that El Niqo affects weather patterns worldwide and causes disasters on almost every continent of the planet Earth, Margaret Rose Kane must confront a catastrophe brewing in her own backyard.

Margaret is looking foward to spending the rest of her summer with her beloved great-uncles, Morris and Alexander. For the last 45 years, the uncles have been building three giant towers in their backyard from scrap metal and shards of glass and porcelain. But now, bowing to pressures from some powerful home owners, the towers have been declared a blight on the neighborhood. Even worse, the city council has voted to have them destroyed.

Margaret Rose is outraged. She knows the towers for what they truly are: irreplaceable works of art. To Margaret, the towers sing. They sing of the joy of making something big and beautiful out of bits and pieces; of integrity; but perhaps most important of all, they sing of history. And Margaret Rose is determined to make sure they always will.

This companion story to Silent to the Bone is a rousing tale of art, history, and the fierce preservation of individuality, as only the incomparable E.L. Konigsburg could write it.

    " I really liked that the main character in this book didn't care what others thought of her. She was determined to be herself. Her uncles were very interesting Hungarian immigrants with colorful personalities that encouraged her independence. "

    " The protaganist, a preteen, only child, bright rich girl who (I'm surmising) doesn't have any friends her own age... kind of bugs me. She was annoying. The book was about fighting "the man" (incidentally, I can't think of one female [besides the protaganist] who was portrayed in a favorable light) and standing up against injustice. I admired how the author tied the two plotlines together. I didn't like the way Margaret spoke... it irked me. What twelve year old talks like that? "
