Loveable thirteen-year-old geek Milo Cruikshank finds reasons for frustration at every turn, from the annoying habits of his neighbors to his futile efforts to get Summer Goodman to realize his existence. The truth is, ever since Milo's mother died, nothing has gone right. Now instead of the kitchen being full of music, his whole house has been filled with Fog. Nothing's the same. Not his Dad.
