Jessica is furious when her English teacher assigns her to work on a class project with Daphne, the sullen girl whom everyone teases. As Jessica becomes better acquainted with Daphne and the harsh environment in which she lives, she begins to value their friendship more than winning acceptance among her other peers. A fast moving, painfully realistic novel about 7th grade conformity and conflict. (Ages 9-13)
