Janie Higgins is all set to enter seventh grade. She's excited about going to a new school and making new friends -- especially since her oldest friend, Alicia, will be starting school with her. But disaster strikes when Janie learns that Alicia and her family are moving clear across the country Now she has to start a new school... alone. Worse, she's lost her best friend forever. Janie isn't the only one coping with a loss, however, as she discovers when she tries to cheer up her recently widowed grandfather. What she learns is that -- young or old -- if you want something good to happen, you have to take a chance.
