For a family of six, two dogs, some cats, and a steady flow of friends and family stopping by for visits, life was of the norm in the Austin family home. When a sudden plane crash kills a family friend, the home is turned upside down. They open their home to an orphaned girl named Maggy Hamilton, and the Austin children (Vicky, John, Suzy, and Rob) try their hardest to welcome Maggy. Maggy is no easy thing. she is moody and spoiled; breaks toys and screams in the middle of night. Not to mention discourages homework and generally causes a ruckus in the Austin home. Will life ever go back to the way it was?
