What do you do when your plans don't work out as expected? Jane had plans to fly all over the world in her own airplane. That was until everyone had to stay home. So, Jane studied so that she could be the top speller in her class, but there is another top speller that is giving her some serious competition. The Capital Bee is coming and this will be Jane's opportunity to show Nate how great of a speller that she really is. Do you think that Jane will make it to the spelling bee?
