When his parents go on vacation, twelve-year-old Parker is palmed off on his eccentric Great-aunt Mattie and Great-uncle Philbert, along with his asthma inhaler and a mile-long list of dos and don'ts. He thinks his laptop, iPod, cell phone, and Game Boy will make life on their ramshackle farm bearable - but where are the cables and batteries to make his electronic gadgets work? This over-wired boy has suddenly come unplugged! Soon Parker finds himself doing things he never imagined, like standing up to bullies, facing his fear of heights, springing Aunt Mattie from jail, and - with the help of Batman - saving the family farm. NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent version and accordingly MAY NOT have a dust jacket.
