Konigsburg, E.L.The outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place._Atheneum, 2004 [0-689-86636-4]
  After she is rescued from a terrible time at a summer camp Margaret is excited 
about spending the rest of the summer with her two eccentric uncles who live on 
Schuyler Place.  For more than 40 years these uncles have been building  three 
towers out of scraps of metal, and glass.  Each summer Margaret gets to mix up a 
color of paint for they to touch up the rusting spots on the towers.  Well.. they 
neighborhood has changed over the years and is now becoming the trendy place to 
live and the neighbors do not like the towers.  They get the town to go along with 
having them destroyed.  Margaret spends the rest of the summer trying to save the 
towers.  Are they an eye-sore?   Are they a work of art?  Do the new neighbors have 
the right to destroy a neighborhood institution?  This 296 page book is the story 
of a young girl trying to save the main reason for her maverick uncle's lives.
