Gil Goodson is one of many contestants in the Golly Toy & Game Company's ultimate competition. If he wins, his dad promised the family can move out of Orchard Heights—away from all the gossip, the false friends, and bad press that have plagued the Goodsons ever since "The Incident". His friends have ditched him, but if he wins, he can start over. Is he ready to begin the wildest most memorable ride of his life?
