By lindsaym, Updated
Nicky did not want to go to his grandmas for the summer. He did not want to go because his friends won´t be there and also there is not even a tv! Nicky's dad even said that Grandma wasn't normal. Nicky did not think he would like being at Grandma's.
At first Nicky was uncomfortable about being at Grandma's. But then he found a raft in the river. This made him happy and he couldn't wait to get to the raft everyday. Now, NIcky was enjoying being at Grandma's house.
At the end of the story Nicky really got along with grandma and enjoyed being there. They went to the raft and played in the river. Nicky saw many animals and they weren't afraid of him anymore. On the last day, Nicky saved a baby deer that was stuck in the mud. He became a "river rat" just like Grandma. Nicky felt bad that he had to leave Grandma's; because of the raft he had changed his mind about being at Grandma's house.
