Ugh: it’s always so awkward when someone you’d rather avoid helps you. Frank doesn’t know how to feel when Nick Underbridge saves her from bullies one afternoon. No one likes Nick. He’s big, he’s weird and he smells. At least, that’s what all the kids in Frank’s class say. Yet there’s something nice about Nick’s house. Maybe it’s the strange music playing there, but it feels light and good. It makes Frank feel happy for the first time in about forever. But there’s more to Nick, and to his house, than meets the eye. Frank isn’t the only one keeping secrets – or the only one who needs help.
