George liked his mom but she died. He doesn't like his dad's new girlfriend but she wants to stay. So he makes a plan to get rid of her that involves a dead mouse. Unfortunately, they are stuck on the small island where George lives with his brother and dad until the water freezes hard enough to support a snowmobile.

Does the girlfriend leave? Does George really want her to leave? And what ARE "in-between" days, anyway!?!? Read this short book to find out. It has humor, love, and even a little suspense at the end. It made me laugh, it made me cry. I like just about anything by this author and I liked this book.
