There is not one single problem. The wonder of this book is how well all the many different problems of the book come together into a seamless whole. The Souls are trying to win the Academic Bowl. Mrs. Olinski is trying to find a way to be whole, find peace, and teach now that she's in a wheelchair. Each of the four members of the Souls is trying to find a way to fit in. (Each has a different challenge.)
