Nothing's the same after Ernest meets Victoria ... and all thirteen of her brothers! Ten-year-old Ernest has a flat, colorless life. Each day is the same: he comes home right after school, eats a healthy snack, and does his homework. Enter Victoria, the new girl in school. Victoria asks Ernest to help her carry her books home, and the next thing Ernest knows, she and her thirteen brothers have turned his quiet routine upside-down. Much to his surprise, he likes it. Bit by bit, color seeps into his humdrum existence — and Ernest begins to realize that life can hold love, hope, friendship, and adventure.
