Posy, Megan, and Mae have always been the best of friends -- but now Posy has to move away. Only their favorite activity can comfort the girls: baking pie! And when they realize they can host a good-pie party instead of a good-bye party, the sad situation becomes a sweet gathering for their entire community. THE GOOD-PIE PARTY celebrates good friends, good memories, and the joy of the just-right good-byes.
