Troy's mom soon after decides that Troy should spend some time with her aunt, uncle and cousin. And who could forget their dog too. Even though she isn't so fondd of the idea she agrees to it to please her mom. Troy's tenth birthday arrives and she gets a letter from her mom which is when she decides she should go back home.
