For Samantha Spinner, it just isn't fair. Her uncle Paul disappeared, and here's what he left:
Samantha's sister got a check for $2,400,000,000.
Samantha's brother got the New York Yankees.
And Samantha...got a rusty red umbrella with a tag hanging off of its worn handle. The tag says "Watch out for the RAIN." Thanks, Uncle Paul.
Even harder for Samantha to understand is, after all the strawberry waffles they've shared, how could Uncle Paul leave without saying goodbye? The answer is simple. Sam knows in her heart that uncle Paul is in danger. If only he'd left a clue...Well, if Sam's Uncle Paul taught her anything, it's that not everything is exactly what it seems. Which is why we should pay close attention to that rusty red umbrella, and never trust a monkey at a hula-hoop contest.
The RAIN is coming and whether she likes it or not, Samantha Spinner is about to find herself mixed up in some super-puzzling, super-dangerous, super-secret plans. And if she's brave enough, she might just find Uncle Paul.
