Cassie has always been friends with Brenda. They do everything together, share secrets, work together at school. Everything in the children's garden is fine, not a cloud in sight. Then their teacher separates the girls for a project, new partners are introduced, and the test of friendship falls at the first hurdle. Cassie makes friends with a girl they have both previously unmercifully teased, while Brenda's new friend is a girl that Cassie dislikes. Quite a tightly, moral little story, in which not a lot seems to happen, but quiet a few acute observations about the 'growing up' game are made. 'Sometimes you have to stick up for your friends.'
