It's safe to say Happy Conklin Jr. is the only 10-year-old who accidentally sold his entire family to aliens. The good news is that Hap managed to save his family, but now the Conklins face an even bigger problem: Hap wants a girl to be his lab partner but lacks the courage to even talk to her. Through the mysterious powers of Squeep! the lizard, he finds a way to overcome this fear but also, unfortunately, opens a black hole in his middle school that will swallow the solar system unless he's able to stop it.

Although Hap's dad has made a fortune with his wacky inventions sold via nonstop TV infomercials, all of that money has gone to Hap's tyrannical Grandma. While she lives in an enormous mansion, the rest of the family lives in two rooms in the basement. All Hap has ever wanted is to have a normal life, so when he sees a chance to get rid of Grandma, he takes it! He only means to swap out Grandma, but when he --- oops! --- sells his whole family to the aliens, he wants nothing more than to get them back. He just has to figure out...how?
