Nona's bicycle is old and worn out. The spokes are bent, the paint is chipped, and the chain falls off at the worst moments. "Clunker, clunker, clunker. Nona's got a junker!"
Nona wants a new bike and not just any bike - a Deluxe Red Racer. But her parents don't see why they should buy her a new bike when she already has one. Then Nona has a wicked thought: What if my old bicycle disappeared?
