Through this rhyming tale, we follow our young narrator through a series of stressful situations. She wants to try out for the school play and make a new friend at dance camp - but the pain in her chest always gets in her way. She finally opens up to her Mum who explains the pain in her chest is called 'anxiety'. With her Mum's understanding and support, she slowly cures the pain in her chest.
