After losing her mother, Clara tries to get used to her new life -- shopping for clothes with dad; Tess' chocolate chip cookies (instead of the sugar cookies Mama made); and more responsibility with her little brother Calvin.

But, with the help of her good friends and caring teacher, Clara learns how to grow up without leaving the memory of her mother behind.
