People do not fit together, especially not Ella. She only fits with one person and that is Tommy, her favorite uncle and BFF. Ella looks forward to spending a week with him when her parents go on vacation. But the dream week that Ella has envisioned turns into a disastrous nightmare when Steve shows up. He is Tommy’s new boyfriend from the Netherlands! Ella doesn’t understand a word they say, as they only speak English with each other. She feels left out and fears that she will lose Tommy. In a rage of jealousy Ella concocts all sorts of creative schemes to get rid of Steve, and to win back her best friend. To her aid comes Otto, a new boy in Ella’s class who’ll do anything to become her friend.
