All 14-year-old Monica Bloomfield wants is to spend August at a science camp far away from her idiot sister and weird little brother.
Trouble is, Monicaâ€™s being dragged into the wedding party of her crabby old great aunt who lives in Englandâ€”and if she wants to earn that science camp, she has to keep her siblings in line for the entire trip, plus convince her crazy Grandma to move into a nursing home pronto. Monicaâ€™s determined to succeed, but things start out badlyâ€”and go downhill fast.
First, her hyperactive brother overdoses on caffeine right before their eight-hour flight to England. Then a botched wine-tasting party ends so badly that even a policeman is left speechless (and in need of a new uniform).
Getting into science camp isnâ€™t going to be easyâ€”especially with a rampaging bull, drunk parrot and the most gorgeous guy in the universe standing in her way.
