After years of being homeschooled, Amy Hodges is excited to start fourth grade at a "real" school. But on Amy's first day, she gets teased not only because she's new, but also because she looks different. Amy is African American, White and Asian. Eventually, Amy meets a group of nice kids and one of them even affectionately gives her the nickname "Amy Hodgepodge" since she's a mix of so many races. But when their teacher announces the annual talent show is coming up, Amy worries that her new friends won't want to include her. Will they?
