Clara was a happy and popular girl. But when she lost her temper one too many times, she lost her friends with it. Clara was left all alone for summer vacation, until she received an unexpected visit from the coolest customer around: Brodhi the Bird. Over butter tarts, Brodhi teaches Clara to calm her temper through the art of meditation. Come September, Clara’s ready to go back to school and win back her friends—but will her newfound sense of calm survive the first day?
