Do you get along with your sister? Do you think she's a freak? Does she think YOU'RE a freak?

Catherine is a high school beauty queen cheerleader. Cosette is a homeschooled spelling bee champion. Two sisters could never be farther apart. So when their worlds collide sparks are bound to fly. The buzzing in their brains gets so hot that life-sized giant bees enter the picture. Then the emotions explode!

Sisters, spelling bees, fruit leather, fitting in, photographs, photo ops, say cheese…
