But on her birthday, her Poppa gets into an accident and is rushed to the hospital with little hope for survival. This event sets Mibs and her siblings on a forty-eight-hour adventure to get to the hospital, hoping to save their father using their savvies. Along the way, they meet many new friends that help them with their quest.
