At least that's how it looks to Clarice Bean, who has been writing her worries in a notebook things like Worry no. 1: infinity, or Worry no. 3: change. And now that her worst never-imagined worry has happened her utterly best friend is moving away forever Clarice doesn t even care about her tickets to the Ruby Redfort, girl detective, movie premiere.
