Nine-year-old Mya Tibbs is boot-scootin excited for the best week of the whole school year SPIRIT WEEK She and her megapopular best friend, Naomi Jackson, even made a pinky promise to be Spirit Week partners so they can win the big prize: special VIP tickets to the Fall Festival

But when the partner picking goes horribly wrong, Mya gets paired with Mean Connie Tate the biggest bully in school. And she can t get out of it.

Good gravy.

Now Naomi is friend-ending mad at Mya for breaking a promise even though Mya couldn t help it and everyone at school is calling Mya names. Can Mya work with Mean Connie to win the VIP tickets and get her best friend back?
