In her third book about the Steele family, Robinson presents another set of kaleidoscopic everyday events in what is probably the first juvenile book with a theme involving the national debt. It's the eve of income-tax day. Angela, now a first-grader, is sincerely concerned about the US economy and wants to help. Finding a conveniently blank 1040 tax form, she tapes rainbow stickers and her small life savings to it and sends it off, precipitating a family crisis since it was her parents' only copy of the form. Angela concludes from their frantic reaction that she is in big trouble; thus, she spends most of the book suspecting that everyone else's actions are moves toward her punishment. A couple of subplots involving Angela's older brother and sister are woven skillfully into the narrative, altogether adding up to a heartwarming and believable, if not outstanding, family story that series fans will love.
