Joey will do anything to keep his family together. But his efforts fail when his father runs off with his ex-nanny and he now has a half-brother. Too late, he gives up on science, homework and himself. He flunks Mr. S’s science class, bails on Tessa, a fellow science nerd and best friend, and takes up with Marcus, a skateboarder with an attitude. His life with Mom is more like living with a roommate. And he won’t connect with his dad. Can his gardening save him from himself?
