Meet Kate Geller, a sassy flute-playing artist, who comes up with an original way to redefine friendship. Kate's older sister is way too perfect. Her younger sister is way too cute. And her mom wants her to be pals with her frenemy, Nora. Her art teacher, Mrs Petty, is way too uncreative, and how can Kate pay attention at Junior Guides when her pod leader has a sweat stain the size of the town beach? Now she has to get through her Christopher Columbus role during Discovery Day and her 'Colonial Buddies' report, but little does she kw how much 'help' she'll be getting from Elear Roosevelt and Albert Einstein.
