When Julian gets sick at school, he has to go stay at his uncle’s office until his uncle, Sibley Carter, can take him home. He wasn’t really planning on reading his uncle’s email, but one of them had his name on it – literally. After reading the email with the subject line “Julian,” he’s pretty sure the next email’s subject line is true, “Sibley Carter is a moron and a world-class jerk!”
Julian is staying with his aunt and uncle while his mom is working in China over the summer. Things are not going well, to say the least. He’s constantly in trouble for reasons he doesn’t understand, and his aunt and uncle seem like they just want to be rid of him. When he discovers that his uncle’s company is about to cut down an old growth redwood forest for the lumber, he schemes with his old friend Danny and his new friend Robin (who sent the second email) to save the forest.
