After a series of defeated efforts, Missy and her friends come up with a masterful plan--they'll throw a bowling party in Jaque's honor. When Missy accidentally drops the ball on Jaque's foot and breaks it, it seems like all is lost. Ironically, though, through what appears to be a tragedy, Jaque opens up and reveals that she's really been covering up the pain she feels as a result of moving and leaving all of her old friends. Missy and Jaque soon forgive one another and forge what will certainly be a lifelong friendship. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
