Seventh grader Frankie's life is thrown into turmoil when she inadvertently opens her widowed father's email and discovers he has met and become interested in a woman. In an attempt to thwart their romance, she replies to the woman's messages with all sorts of untrue information about her father and younger brothers. Of her brothers, she writes, they have diarrhea every minute of the day and are genetically disposed to being mean to adult females. She then tells her that her father is chronically ill, so kissing him is a bad idea. Besides, he just became engaged to someone else. The woman is a zookeeper specializing in naked mole rats. How she handles Frankie's correspondence and helps her solve many other junior high disappointments and issues is a hilarious treat to read.

Warning! Do not read beyond this sentence! The narrator has a story that he won't tell, because you (the reader) will run into terrible danger if you know the secret. All right, he will tell, using made-up names and places. Cassandra is a survivalist who is always prepared for disaster. While visiting her adopted grandfathers, she overhears the story of the mysterious death of the local magician and determines that she must solve it. Together with fellow classmate Max-Ernest, an aspiring stand-up comedian, she discovers there is more to this secret than meets the eye, or nose, when they examine the 'Symphony of Smells,' which contains a code to the mystery. Before long, they meet up with the villainous Dr. L and the 'golden lady,' ageless Ms. Mauvais and realize they must hide the secret or they will perish.
