When Sarai's best friend suddenly moves away, Sarai has to navigate school — and the unfriendly girls in the cafeteria — all by herself. When new girl Cristina moves to town, the teacher volunteers Sarai to show her around, but Sarai thinks Cristina is not at all like her. She never wants to play at recess, she's always got her head in a notebook and she's so shy! But when Cristina writes Sarai a spoken-word poem for her to recite at the class talent show, Sarai learns that sometimes winning teams are made from unlikely pairs! Inspired by the life of viral video sensation and social activist Sarai Gonzlaez with the help of award-winning children's book author, Monica Brown.
