Carole Hanson knew cheating on that test was wrong, but she didn’t predict how extreme her punishment would be. Being grounded has been harsh—no phone, no TV, no hanging out with friends, no job, and absolutely no Pine Hollow.

On the other hand, Stevie Lake is an expert at being grounded—freedom seems like a distant memory. Then something wonderful happens—her parents give her a day off. Nothing could be better than spending it with her boyfriend, Phil, and their buddy A.J.—until A.J.’s reckless behavior puts them all at risk. Being grounded might soon be the least of their problems.
