Bea Garcia needs a new best friend since hers moved far away to Australia. The smartest girl in her class, Einstein, asks her to be her partner in the Top Ten Geography Star contest. The two of them get together and Einstein assigns Bea 257 facts to learn before the next day. Bea is worried she won’t be able to remember them all. She looks over at Einstein and sees that only right answers come out of her pencil. Bea takes Einstein’s pencil home but discovers that, instead of writing, Bea cannot help but draw the answers. She realizes that everyone has their own way of learning, and hers is through drawing.
