The unstoppable Cleo Edison Oliver returns in an adventure that’s rich in all senses of the word.

Cleopatra Edison Oliver has a brand new business: Passion Clips. She and her best friend Caylee are going to take the world by storm with their personalized barrettes. All they need now is their big break. So when successful businesswoman Fortune A. Davies announces a new website where “kidpreneurs” can upload ads for their businesses, Cleo invites all of her customers to film an ad for FortuneTube. But making a commercial is different from running a business, and when Cleo’s customers get fed up with her direction, she might lose her friends and her chance to shine. Meanwhile, Cleo is more and more certain that she wants to meet her birth parents — but she’s starting to wonder if they will ever want to meet her. Can she win back her friends, take her business to the next level, and find the family she’s been looking for?
