Booktalk #2

It is wonderful to have a best friend who understands you and likes everything you like. And what could be better than having that best friend living right on your own street? Nikki and Deja do everything together, but when Antonia moves into the neighborhood—they decide to make a club that SHE can't join. The problem is—well, I don't want to give it away, but the rules of the club might be just a bit too hard for one of the friends to follow.
