Kidnapped! The "kidnappers" are actually her Aunt Sandy and Uncle Max, and when they whisk Domenica Santolina Doone (better known as Dinnie) away to an international school in Switzerland, she feels that this might be one "opportunity" that isn't quite right for her. Suddenly surrounded by kids from many different cultures, backgrounds and beliefs, her home and former life seem so far away. Can she adapt, or will it be easier to close herself off and never realize all the "bloomabilities" that are possible?
