There’s a new family on Grove Street. Winnie’s best friend, Iggie, has just moved away – and Winnie’s bored as hell without her. So she’s determined to be friends with the new family – especially Glenn, who’s kind of cute.

And the toughest thing of all is that Winnie’s terrified her parents might sign the petition – and there’s nothing she can do to stop them.
