The kids in the Gifted Program realize quickly there were many things their ex-teacher, Ms. Magos, wasn’t completely honest about. With no one left to answer their questions, Jaime speculates that a relative chooses the most worthy descendant to pass on their Gift. She convinces her friends that her great Aunt Evelyn can reveal the details of their jewelry’s past and teach them about their Gifts.
