Leo is a daydreamer who gets lost in his big, loud family. His big chance to be noticed at the school play is dashed when Mr. Beeber gives Leo an unexpected role. But by delving deeper into his new part, Leo begins to understand his family a little better… and happens across an old family secret.
It is not a good idea to call yourself a sardine in a family like Leo’s, who will not let you forget it.
