Being Dirk's relay partner is bad enough, but when Abby finds out she's going to be responsible for his ant colony, it's almost too much. If there's one thing Abby doesn't like...it's bugs. Leave it to Dirk to have ants for pets. But Abby's sister, Tess, thinks the ants are great, and even more unbelievable, Tess gets along with Dirk! Abby wants nothing to do with either of them until she nearly knocks over the ant farm and badly disrupts their small sand caves and tunnels. Then she discovers that Tess is right; ants are amazing creatures and a lot smarter than she thought. Is it possible that she's been too hard on Dirk and Tess? With the Crazy Olympics just a few days away, she still has a chance to put things right.
