In book four of the Faithgirlz series---the Girls of 622 Harbor View---the girls find out their town's only city park has been vandalized and may soon be turned into a parking lot. They group together to save their beloved park and soon meet an elderly woman with the power to help their cause, or stop it before it even starts.
