When Zoey's favorite author comes to town, she gets permission from her dad to leave campus and go to the Book Nook to meet her. But when the teacher who's going to drive Zoey to the place goes into labor Zoey tries to find an adult to drive her there. She finds Coco, who will only do it if Michael makes her a family dish, who will only do it if Stacey will finish their project by herself, who in turn wants a date with Logan. Logan wants his ring back from Dustin, who wants Lola to be his assistant for his magic show, who needs Chase to babysit for their teacher's kid. Chase now wants Zoey to tell a bunch of nerds to leave him, who will only do it if Quinn gives them a computer program she made.
