Amanda is a lonely little girl. Her mother means well, but doesn't have a lot of time for a 9-year-old and, after plenty of begging from Amanda, agrees to let her have a pet. Amanda chooses a ferret (and names her Peach) because ferrets aren't ordinary and, darn it, neither is she!
But her mom sets up Two Big Rules: 1) Amanda has to care for Peach, and 2) Peach can't ever bite Amanda.
It seems like Amanda finally has the friend she's needed ... but Peach sees Amanda's hands as five-serpent monsters -- and bites in what she thinks of as self-defense!
What will little, lonely Amanda do now if her mom finds out her new best pet is actually a biter?!
