From the back cover:
"All I want to do on a rainy day like today is play my game, but my mom says it’s a waste of time. The game makes my mom crazy. Angry.
She takes it away.
I take it back.
I wish Dad had come with us on this rainy, gray weekend.
Without my game, nothing is fun.
On the other hand, maybe I’m wrong about that. . . . "
