When Mali is accepted into the prestigious Brooklyn Academy, she is excited for her new opportunities, but also nervous about leaving her old friends behind. She has to learn to balance her new friends, her schoolwork, and her responsibilities in the family restaurant. Everything seems great until a school project leads to jealousy, betrayal, and a desperate move by Mali that puts the family business at risk. Will Mali’s decisions work out for the best? Or will her school project turn out to be a recipe for disaster?
