"Little kids don't go to jail."

At least Stacy's hoping they don't!  It's not easy to be good all the time.  Stacy just had to try on the beautiful gold shoes her friend Jiwon brought to school to sell in the class store.  Now the shoes are lost, and it's Stacy's fault.

Even worse, Stacy's friends think she stole the shoes.  How can she explain what really happened?  Telling the truth is hard, but Stacy knows if the shoe fits, she has to wear it!
