Dewey never guesses that the gas pumps would run dry the same week he promised to manage the family bicycle-repair business. Suddenly everyone needs a bike repaired, and Dewey is in a crunch.
From the Publisher:

Dewey Marriss is stuck in the middle of a crunch.

He never guessed that the gas pumps would run dry the same week he promised to manage the family's bicycle-repair business. Suddenly everyone needs a bike. And nobody wants to wait.

Meanwhile, the crunch has stranded Dewey's parents far up north with an empty fuel tank and no way home. It's up to Dewey and his older sister, Lil, to look after their younger siblings and run the bike shop all on their own.

Each day Dewey and his siblings feel their parents' absence more and more. The Marriss Bike Barn is busier than ever. And just when he is starting to feel crunched himself, Dewey discovers that bike parts are missing from the shop. He's sure he knows who's responsible?or does he? Will exposing the thief only make more trouble for Dewey and his siblings?

Award-winning author Leslie Connor has created another timely family story infused with humor and hope.

The oldest Marriss brother, fourteen-year-old Dewey, attempts to be the "embodiment of responsibility" as he juggles the management of the family's bicycle repair business while sharing the household and farm duties with his siblings after a sudden energy crisis strands their parents far from home.
Annotation:
When a gas shortage strands his parents far from home, 14-year-old Dewey Marriss must help run the family's bike shop, the Bike Barn. Not only is there a huge surge in customers to cope with, but someone seems to be stealing bike parts. Dewey also has to cope with his siblings, and a deeply cranky neighbor. But he also discovers how important community is, and just how close family can be.
