Sometimes life in the Hatcher household is enough to make twelve-year-old Peter think about running away. His biggest and worst problem is his younger brother, Fudge – a huge embarrassment and a total pain. But then Peter learns that his mum is going to have ANOTHER baby – and the whole family is moving to Princeton for a year. It’s bad enough starting sixth grade in a strange place and having to go to the same school as his little brother. But how on earth will Peter ever survive if the new baby is a carbon copy of Fudge?
