His parents are planning a surprise. But it's not at all what Alex thinks. Hanging out with friends, girls, and dreaming of the next video game's release-that's what 13-year-old Alex's life is all about. He's got it good. His parents give him just about everything he wants. Then one day, everything changes. No more new video games for him, since his parents are saving money to adopt a little girl from China. Alex is in shock. But he has no idea just how much a little "PopTart" from the other side of the world will capture his heart.
