Each of the viewpoint characters in this fun book has his or her own problem (or problems). However, there are two interrelated problems that they all share. First, each of the children and the teacher are all trying to find ways to fit in. Second, as members of the academic team, they want to win the competition. Obviously, these two relate: they must accept one another to have a chance at winning, and if they win, they'll have better places in life/school.
