Drew believes her summer is made. She'll spend her summer days working in her mom's cheese shop, feeding leftovers to her pet rat, and hanging out with her coworker and secret crush, surfer Nick. But her summer becomes much more than she expected when she discovers her deceased father’s book of lists. Suddenly, Drew begins to wonder what she's doing with her life. Then she meets Emmet in the alley behind her mother's shop. He knows a lot about rats and leads Drew on an adventure she'll never forget.
