Can Gerald survive vacation with his crazy family? The Creeper family is planning a month-long summer vacation! But where will they go? On a road trip across the Overworld? Backpacking in the Extreme Hills? Camping out in caves? Gerald and his sisters can't agree! When Dad suggests they do all three, Gerald hops on board. But he quickly realizes that the only thing worse than being stuck with his sisters at home is being stuck with them in a minecart for hours on end. Cammy is so excited, she keeps blowing up. Cate is sulking because she couldn't pack all her wigs. And Chloe is determined to stir up trouble wherever they go—and she’s dragging Gerald right along with her. Abandoned mineshafts? Let's check 'em out! Miners? Let's freak 'em out! Cave spiders? Let's blow them into oblivion! To get through this vacation, Gerald is going to have to get creative—and come up with a serious survival plan.
