Romy (10) dislikes having to go to her grandmother's hair salon after school, but it turns out that her grandmother really needs Romy's help.
Romy’s mother has to work a lot. That’s why Romy goes to her grandmother every day after school. If you think that sounds like fun, then you’re wrong, because Grandma Stine is very busy working in her hairdressing salon, and is very strict. But everything changes when Romy discovers a totally different side to her grannie’s character.
