Isabella Speedwalker-Juarez is not happy.  No, not one little bit.  She and her mom and her little brother have moved into a tiny trailer.  There just isn't enough room for all Isabella's stuff.  And there is no way she should have to share a room with Dozer.  But Mom's job is not going well so there really is no choice.  But now things may get worse. Mom doesn't have the money to pay for the above-ground swimming pool that she promised Isabella.  It's on lay-away but there's no money for the final payments.  Can Isabella come up with a way to pay for it?  And will she have to share?
