All she ever wanted to do was be a great violinist. Lotus Bloom was not the kind of girl who looked for trouble. In fact, her laid back style and live and let live attitude kept her life calm and easy. That is, until she begins attending the new performance arts middle school in her community. Best friend,
Rebel, believes the community would’ve been better off if money for the new performance arts school had been used instead to build up the aging schools in their district. Lotus wants to steer clear of conflict, and that includes protesting against the new school that she loves so much. However, when a simple classroom prank—throwing paper airplanes into her hair—escalates, Lotus realizes there is a time to hang back and there is a time… to fight back!
