It''s the beginning of fifth grade, when anything can happen, and a first-day disaster just might blossom into something sweet for four very different girls.
First there's new girl Violet, who asks for directions.
Then there's goofball Katie-Rose, who gestures a little too enthusiastically.
Then there's quiet Yasaman, who passes by at the wrong moment.
And then there's popular girl Milla, who takes a spectacular tumble, along with the precious contents of her backpack.
How her lucky bobble-head turtle goes missing, and then ends up as part of a sinister plot devised by queen bee Medusa - er, Modessa - to frame one of the girls, is all part of a BIG MESSY MESS the four must get to the bottom of together. Along the way, it may turn out that four "flowers" add up to something pretty wonderful: friends.
