Seventh-grader Annabelle's mother is a hoarder, and their whole house is filled with empty cans, broken toys, fabric, and old newspapers - but when a pile of newspapers falls on Annabelle's younger sister Leslie and their mother is more concerned about the newspapers, it sets off a chain of events that brings their fix-it-all grandmother in. Annabelle realizes that if there is any hope for change she can not isolate herself and keep her family's problems secret.
