BFFs Madison and Alyssa have the summer planned out—long days at the beach, hanging out, baking cookies—but all that changes when Alyssa’s mother and the film crew have to head back to Hollywood. Which means Alyssa is moving, just when Madison finally has a best friend. But there’s a silver lining: Madison is invited to spend some time over the summer in Los Angeles!
Madison is excited to travel on her own, but she doesn’t count on being homesick—or having to deal with her fear of dogs by sharing the house with Nadine, Alyssa’s large but lovable Rottweiler. But the chance to meet Alyssa’s recently discovered father and an opportunity to pay back an obnoxious tour guide give the best friends plenty of distractions—and show them both that they have much more strength than they ever realized.
