Mustard. A charity orange. Five apples. A half-gone pint of charity cream cheese. A half-gone gallon of milk. An open can of Friskies. And a half-gone liter of Diet Coke. That's all the food in the house when Cassie's sister, Miranda, forgets to do the shopping. It's just the lat...est crisis in Cassie's life since her father moved out and her mother went back to work, and Cassie feels totally responsible for keeping things together for her little brother. And things aren't any better at school. Cassie's grades are plummeting, her best friends have turned nasty, she's getting mixed signals from a cute boy, and then there's Mr. Mullaney -- the weirdest, hardest English teacher in the seventh grade -- who hates everything she does.
