For the first time in her life, fourth grader Jada Jones does not want to go to school.
Her best friend, Mari, just moved to Arizona, and Jada doesn't know who will hunt for rocks with her at recess. When she’s assigned to a group for their rocks and minerals project, Jada hopes she can make some new friends. While Lena seems on board with that, Simone is going out of her way to ignore Jada and make her feel bad. Can the girls work out their differences before their project is due?
