Twelve-year-old Darcy Diggins has firsthand knowledge that it does. She has an incredible story to tell, but who is going to believe that an anonymous act of kindness can produce a full-grown miniature person called a Dewbabie, and that the misplaced tribe of tiny people from the RainForest live in her closet?
In order to protect the Dewbabies, Darcy enlists the help of her zany grandmother, Ms. Earlene, the celebrity storyteller whose outfits are always worth a mention. Darcy not only has to manage a middle school bully determined to ruin her reputation, but she also has to restrain a middle-age bully, her miserable, misguided aunt who is also her middle school guidance counselor. Aunt Estelle’s misery leads her straight to a scam artist wanted by the FBI. As Darcy’s responsibilities multiply, so does her resolve, and this is how and when she discovers her aptitude for “Biospychology.”
