Laura is having her first sleepover at Aunt Pat's and everything is different—no light-light, no breakfast cereal, no television and no toys. Even the garden is full of 'yucky' bugs. This sleepover is no fun and Laura wants to go home! Then Laura and her aunt spend the day at the beach and Laura is surprised to discover memories hidden behind simple things—like stones on the beach.
