Chapter 15 Summary

When Nick Allen is a junior in college, he turns twenty-one. He finds out about the trust fund his father set up when he was in fifth grade. Suddenly Nick has more money that he knows what to do with.

Nick gives some of his money to his parents so they can take a big trip. He gives some to his brother to set up a college savings account for his brother’s little girl. Nick also buys a computer, some games, and a bike. Then he pretty much forgets about the money and goes back to being an ordinary college student.

That fall, Nick receives a big, heavy package from Mrs. Granger. Inside the package is a brand-new dictionary, a note, and the envelope Mrs. Granger made him sign ten years ago.
