When her parents announce they're going out of town, Allie is convinced she's going to have the best weekend ever with Uncle Jay in charge...until Allie's mom announces that Allie has to go to Brittany Hauser's birthday party.
But Allie doesn't even like Brittany Hauser, or want to go with all her snobby friends in a stretch limo to her big blowout birthday bash at the Build-a-Bear store, and then spend the night in a deluxe hotel suite in the city. Allie's going to miss all her real friends.
Besides, Allie knows Brittany only invited her because Mrs. Hauser made her, since Allie's mom is the star movie reviewer for Good News!, the local cable news show.
