Madison Stokes leads a pretty average life: average mom and dad, average looks, average grades—well, maybe her little sister is MUCH brattier than average, but nothing out of the ordinary.
All that changes when Alyssa Hawkins moves to town. When Madison takes Alyssa under her wing, the two girls quickly bond over chocolate-chip cookies and become best friends. Amazingly, Alyssa doesn’t even mind Madison’s bratty sister!
But there are some things Alyssa won’t share. Why won't she talk about her family? And why is she so reluctant to have Madison over to her house? Alyssa has a secret that she doesn't want anyone to know. And when Madison finds out by accident, she would love to tell it. But if she does, she risks losing the best friend she's ever had...
