Mike tries so hard to please his father, but the only language his dad seems to speak is calculus. And for a boy with a math learning disability, nothing could be more difficult. When his dad sends him to live with distant relatives in rural Pennsylvania for the summer to work on an engineering project, Mike figures this is his big chance to buckle down and prove himself. But when he gets there, nothing is what he thought it would be. The project has nothing at all to do with engineering, and he finds himself working alongside his wacky eighty-something- year-old aunt, a homeless man, and a punk rock girl as part of a town-wide project to adopt a boy from Romania. Mike may not learn anything about engineering, but what he does learn is far more valuable.They look okay to me. ... a€œIf you look closer, youa#39;ll see poor stitching, stuffing coming outa€”just not good enough to sell. ... I say no. But nurse give him chocolate. Jeez! Should he be eating chocolate? If is good dark Romanian chocolate, yes.
