When her mother moves them from the city to a small town to open up a cupcake bakery, Penny finds her life isn't what she expected. Her father has stayed behind, and Mom isn't talking about what the future holds for their family. And then there's Charity, the girl who plays mean pranks almost daily. Of course, there are also bright spots in Hog's Hollow — like Tally, an expert in rock-paper-scissors, and Marcus, the boy who is always running on the beach. But just when it looks as though Penny is settling in, her parents ask her to make a choice that will turn everything upside down again.
