A family secret is revealed during an ill-fated--yet hilarious--trip to
Sixteen-year-old Hannah Sampson knows her family is not what you would
call normal. Her father compulsively buys dented cans and has a
particular fondness for cans without labels, which are extremely
discounted because their contents are a mystery. Her mother takes
countless pictures of her family and then glues them down into the
pages of her scrapbooks, but does not allow anyone to look at them.
Ryan, Hannah's mischievous fourteen-year-old brother, is headed
straight for the remedial track at the local community college, if
he's lucky. Ben, her eight-year-old brother, is a walking sound
effects machine, who prefers to communicate with noises rather than
words. While Hannah is focused on escaping her working-class
Connecticut suburb, she also finds herself being tugged back home as
she worries about her brother Ben.
Hannah's parents inflict one last family vacation on the Sampson
children, a trip that goes comically wrong almost from the get-go.
Hannah is forced to confront her family's past in Disney World, of all
places, when an emotional argument prompts her parents to disclose a
secret they have been keeping from the children for sixteen years.
Ultimately, she must decide whether to leave her hometown and not look
back, or to focus on helping her family.
