Tate is different, and not just because he came from a pumpkin patch. He loves numbers, especially the number eleven, and he can count lots of things just by looking at them! But all this counting aloud makes most people think Tate talks nonsense. Tate never seems to mind, but his brother does.
No one seems to understand the way Tate's mind works--until his older brother makes a connection and helps the whole family finally see things from Tate's perspective.
