ABOUT THE BOOK
Kayla and Melanie are two of a kind and every girl in the class longs to join them on the jungle gym. Finally, Anna gets her chance, but can she do it if it means leaving her best friend behind?
Sometimes a friend can bring out the worst in you, but a real, true friend will always bring out the best.
