About the Book

Lisa means well. She doesn't want to hurt Peggy, a quiet, outsider in her sixth grade class. She befriends Peggy and is invited to Peggy's birthday party where she has a good time with her and her dog, Lucky. But, in the end, Lisa is afraid of being excluded herself and she goes along with popular Susan and the other girls in her class without speaking up. As a result of their cruelty to Peggy, Peggy's father takes her out of school. Lisa painfully learns that meaning well is not enough. It's the doing that counts.
