Mia and her brother, Chris, continue to have a love-hate relationship. They love to act like they hate each other. That's why, with Mia's best friend and boyfriend gone for the summer, Mia reluctantly takes a summer job. It's only working as a stage crew member for a children's theater group but it gets her out of the house every day. How bad could that be?
If only she knew...
First of all, there are the unusual people that she must work with at this job--definitely not her choice of people to spend days with. On top of that, the more she works there, the more her job transforms into less than just being a stage hand. Might she have to perform? Wear a costume? Mia certainly hopes not. And ugh! Working for a children's theater group actually means working with--children.
In addition to her busy days, she wonders why her boyfriend isn't sending her emails. What's wrong with him? Was he having too much fun without her? And when she does hear from him, her fears could possibly be true.
Her summer is spent with countless disasters, annoying pranks from her brother, many doubts, and accomplishments. Mia may even realize that sometimes not getting what you want can be a good thing, people aren't always what you originally thought, and sometimes the things you dread aren't so bad after all.
Join Mia during her very dramatic summer.
