Jessica is horrified when she is chosen by her 7th grade teacher to be Daphne’s partner for a book-writing contest. Daphne is the reject in their class, and Jessica would much rather work with one of the popular girls, which would do more for Jessica’s social standing. However, once Jessica and Daphne begin work on their book, Jessica discovers that not only is Daphne a wonderful illustrator, but she’s a good friend too. Jessica must wrestle with her loyalties to Daphne and her desire to be accepted by the popular girls. In addition, Daphne lives with her senile grandmother in terrible conditions. Jessica tries to figure out how to help Daphne without separating her from her grandmother.

Jessica’s struggle between acceptance and doing the right thing is very realistic. Anyone who has ever been in 7th grade can certainly sympathize with her.
