But Gracie is the leader of her flock, and she has to do something. She devises The Best Plan Ever that includes an ingenious invention called The Sewer Rat Eradicator. It will prove that chickens are brave, and it will get rid of The Sewer Rat once and for all. And somehow maybe, just maybe, it will also help to fix her best friend’s heart.
