Nadia loves fun facts. Here are a few about her:
- She collects bobbleheads -- she has 77 so far.
- She moved from Egypt to America when she was six years old.
- The hippo amulet she wears is ancient...as in it's literally from ancient Egypt.
- She's going to win the contest to design a new exhibit at the local museum. Because how cool would that be?
(Okay, so that last one isn't a fact just yet, but Nadia has plans to make it one.)
But then a new kid shows up and teases Nadia about her Egyptian heritage. It's totally unexpected, and totally throws her off her game.
And something else happens that Nadia can't explain: Her amulet starts glowing She soon discovers that the hippo is holding a helpful -- and hilarious -- secret. Can she use it to confront the new kid and win the contest?
