CJ is just your typical 7th grader. She's been best friends with Morgan forever. Lately, though, she has become closer to Zoe. As a matter of fact, CJ and Zoe just went to the mall and bought friendship rings. CJ worries what will happen when Morgan finds out. She is right to worry because Morgan is very hurt. CJ is so turned around. Why did her life have to change so much? Before this year, her life was ballet and her friends. Now she wants to play soccer, eat candy and be friends with different kids. She wants to go with the class on field trips instead of going to ballet. Join CJ and she tries to sort out all these new feelings.
