Finally, in frustration Dickie hurls a rock through the window of the Cookie King. She attracts the attention of the owner's son Jamie, a mohawked rebel who has his own axe to grind with his father. Jamie is irresistibly cute--but he has something up his sleeve that Dickie couldn't foresee. What follows is a rollercoaster ride, which Dickie weathers with dogged determination and a wise-ass sense of humor. Unexpected friends come her way, things get blown up, and nothing follows the rules-even the rules of nature!
