Ginger Brown... it sounds like a colour on a paint chart, not a name. It sounds like a joke, or a new shade of hair dye, or one of those treacly sort of cakes that nobody really likes. What kind of parents would call their kid something like that? Well, mine, obviously.
Gone are the days when Ginger was an outsider, always on the fringes of friendship. She's swapped puppy fat and pigtails for make-up and hair straighteners and never looked back- until now.
Ginger and Shannon are best mates, but when they befriend lonely Emily, everything changes. Even the saxophone-playing boy in the tribly hat can't help - he's part of the problem.... Are Ginger and Shannon drifting apart or can they stay best friends forever?
