Twelve-year-old Jessica Oliver's summer is ruined. Instead of swimming, scrapbooking, and hanging out with her friend, she's stuck at her Grandma Charlotte's house at the opposite end of the state. Worse, there's no TV, just a million chores.
When she arrives, Grandma Charlotte is unconscious and a strange man has moved into the house with his rude nephew. The man is creepy and the nephew is definitely not her type. How is she going to stand being stranded there without at least one friend?
