Additional Info

Clare and Sara are sisters; Sara is cool, and Clare is not. Sara’s boyfriend gave her a frog that she doesn’t want, so she passes it along to Clare. Clare reluctantly accepts—only to learn that the frog can talk, his name is Mazefield, and he wants to bring about the apocalypse. So they make a deal: Mazefield will find Clare a date for the school dance, and Clare will meet with two foreign spies for Mazefield and report back to him. Both bungle their missions. Mazefield can’t find Clare a date, and Clare accidentally invites the foreign spies to the school dance. It all comes to a head at the dance in an unexpected and heart-warming conclusion.
