So like my dad was this bigtime TV producer, except his money ran out.  So before these big guys named Vinny the Fish came to "talk" to Dad, we were Audi.  We had to give up our house in the hills AND the only things we had with us were the props from Dad's new horror show, still in production.  And then, like, we ended up in Nowheresville--aka Hickory Fork.  And if that wasn't bad enough, these weirdo high-schoolers ran the whole town, and took over the mall.  So my sister Bambi, who even if she is only in eighth grade is nothing to tangle with, and me and my brother Brick decided to take back the mall for the good of the town--and our  shopping.  Listen, Hickory Fork dorks are nothing compared to us kids from LA.  As if! (Stacy Charlesbois,  Adult & Young Adult Services Librarian,,  Farmington Community Library, Farmington, Michigan)
