Description

Hunter Moran and his twin brother have a small problem to solve: a diabolical dentist who is planning to blow their town to smithereens. They've found clues that prove it. Hunter and Zack have only days to save their town, but first they have to hold a funeral for an incriminating report card before it breaks their mother's heart and keep their father from finding out what they did to his laptop—with four nosy siblings on their tails. This laugh-out-loud novel is filled with wonderfully whimsical characters, momentous amounts of mischief, and plenty of heart.
