Meet Madison Ivy Miles — a sweet 12 year old girl with a spunky attitude and a love for science. Madison's dad just took a new job in Detroit and the whole family (including her annoying little brother) have to move from warm, sunny Georgia to cold and old Michigan. Plus, Madison has to leave her best friend and cousin, Jihan in Georgia and start middle school and make all new friends. It's totally insane! On top of all that, Madison's first week of school comes with major confrontations from Olivia Jackson, the girl who thinks she's all that, and an overload of homework from her science teacher, Mrs. Knowles. Between missing her old school, her best friend Jihan, and dealing with all the craziness of Detroit, will Madison be able to complete her big project on time?
