A family friendly "coming of age" story about 12 year old Tad who is exasperated and angry at being left alone to deal with his overwhelmed mother and out of control twin baby brothers while his father is serving in Afghanistan.
Tad refuses to become the man of the house until he is forced by his own misdeeds to help an ancient and terrifying Hollywood Starlet, Zelda, get water from the Fountain of Youth.
In befriending Zelda and a girl who is being bullied at school, Tad learns he is more resourceful and responsible than he thought, and also learns that one can create a larger family with extended group of loving friends.
