Frannie-May Spiro is not looking forward to February vacation. All of her friends are going somewhere fun, and she has to stay in a little town in Connecticut. One day, her mom has a surprise for her and her siblings. They find out they're going to Amelia Island! Except there's one problem…a certain someone named Joel was coming along. Frannie had some problems with Joel to say the least. He was her mom's boyfriend, and she hated him with all of her gut. She decided to keep him from coming on her family's trip no matter what…and let's just say it didn't turn out so well.
