Celia's New Chart
Celia creates charts to control her world…from pizza night to her toy line up to her family tree. Then from control to chaos, Celia’s life changes when her family adopts creative Calder. Only when a hula-hoop catastrophe turns into a chart illustrating their commonalities does Celia finally begin to see Calder as a part of the family.
