Everyone knows that Chase is the world’s worst babysitter, but when his parents task him to look after his little sister at the local carnival, he hopes to turn that “fact” into a myth. It’s a solid plan, except Chase is easily distracted by the rides, games, sword swallowers and doughnuts—oh, those delicious doughnuts. As the sun sets and night falls over the carnival, he begins to worry that maybe there’s some truth to his parents’ accusations after all.
