Every school has one.  The Freak.  And all the popular kids hate The Freak.  No, they couldn't tell you why they hate them.  They probably have no idea.  But they do.  For Megan, being part of the group was everything.  After all, she was one of the founders of the group.  It was exclusive.  Very few new recruits were ever invited in.  And one thing they never did was talk to The Freak.  In this case, it was a girl with the unkind name of Perdita Wiguiggan (Purdeetah Wigweegan).  What a total freak.  But then Megan finds herself in the situation of actually having a conversation with Perdita.  And from there, the girls start going places together.  This can't be happening.  If any of the girls in the group find out, Megan's reputation will be ruined.  What can she do?
