Cheerful Ruby LaRue and her shy friend Eleanor Bandaranaike couldn’t be more different. Ruby has lived her whole life in the small ski town of Paris, New Hampshire. Eleanor's family comes from Sri Lanka. But these unlikely best friends share one thing: they both have BIG plans. So when a mysterious fortune teller urges them to go outside their world to unlock their dreams, they plunge down a whirlwind path to try to reach their goals.


A relevant story in today’s world—exploring cross-cultural sensitivities and diversity within a classic New England microcosm—The Sugar Mountain Snow Ball questions the role of destiny and the ability we have to achieve that which seems impossible.
