When it comes to tackling third grade, Clementine is at the top of her game---okay,
so maybe not all the time. After her teacher announces that the third and
fourth graders will be putting on a talent show, Clementine panics. She doesn't sing or
dance or play an instrument. She can't even hop with finesse. And as if she didn't
feel bad enough, her perfect best friend, Margaret, has so many talents, she
has to alphabetize them to keep them straight.
As the night of the big "Talent-palooza" draws closer, Clementine is desperate for an
act, any act. But the unexpected talent she demonstrates at the show surprises
everyone--most of all herself.
