Frankie Sparks can’t wait to enter the town-wide sled design contest. With the help of a team, she must design and build a sled using only cardboard and duct tape. And there are prizes! Each team in the contest will be judged on style, speed, and team spirit.

Even though Frankie might know a lot about the science behind building a sled, it turns out she still has a lot to learn about working on a team. With lots of twists, turns, and big bumps along the way, can Frankie and her fellow super-sled designers create a dream machine—and be a dream team?
