Flea, her mom and sister are always moving, her father left her and her family when she was very little. Honestly she just wants a place to call home. Flea collects words like she sees words in different ways, she sees it in thin air. Now she has to start a new school with no friends again. In her town there is someone named the Beetle. She does not know who the Beetle is. The Beetle is who always does nice things for other people. She receives a note from the Beetle that says meet me at the bench without the bird poop. She thinks maybe the school is pulling a prank on her but they aren't . She finds out who the Beetle is, but no one else knows who the Beetle is. So she does. The only thing you need to know is that no one else knows who the Beetle is. Flea and the Beetle become really good friends. At her school they are having a contest and she really wants to be in it. But, she gets stage fright so the Beetle helps her train. Flea writes a poem out of her words. However, the problem is that her mom wants to move again, and just when she made a friend! She thinks maybe if she shows her mom that she's doing activities, she will decide to stay. Guess what?! It works! Now she gets to stay with her new friend and feels happy!
