Twelve-year-old Annie Lamm's first day of summer break quickly turns into a disaster.

She realizes that her parents have not only decided to fly her to Hilton Head Island during their second honeymoon, but they also plan to coerce her to spend half her summer with her 76-year-old Grandpa Donald whom she hardly even knows.

The place where Annie is staying, Grandpa's "beautiful house right by the beach", turns out to be a dilapidated and neglected dwelling filled with stored newspapers and dust covered knickknacks.

Soon Annie's summer plans of parties and boys are dashed in an instant  as Grandpa’s life consists of napping and crosswords.
