Sophie is supposed to help out around the house, and that's bad enough. But then her mother comes up with a job chart, and all of a sudden Sophie has a whole list of new chores to do. Some of them, like cleaning the downstairs toilet, are gross! "Menial," says big brother Thad, who somehow manages to avoid doing any of his own new jobs. "No fair!" says Sophie. Sophie's father went on strike when his beliefs were on the line. Now Sophie sees no alternative but to stand up for what she believes in. The ensuing battle of wills threatens to defeat even the indomitable Sophie. Will the Hartleys have to eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for every meal from now on? Will they ever have happy family times together again?
