Summary/Review: Twelve-year-old Flor faces problems at home while spending a summer working at her parents' store, partnering with former friend Candice for a pageant, and volunteering with a reclusive beekeeper. It's the summer before eighth grade and Flor is stuck at home and working at her family's mattress store, while her best friend goes off to band camp (probably to make new friends). It becomes even worse when she's asked to compete in the local honey pageant. This means Flor has to spend the summer practicing her talent (recorder) and volunteering (helping a recluse bee-keeper) with Candice, her former friend who's still bitter about losing the pageant crown to Flor when they were in second grade. And she can't say no. Then there's the possibility that Flor and her family are leaving to move in with her mom's family in New Jersey. And with how much her mom and dad have been fighting lately, is it possible that her dad may not join them? Flor can't let that happen. She has a lot of work to do.
