Karla needs permission to stay overnight at Carol's because it is the only way she can go to the party her new friends have invited her to. She needs to give Carol an answer before they cancel the invite. But Karla is afraid her mother will say no.
New school, new friends, hot football captain and an invite to a Friday night party could spell disaster. Karla trusts anyone who will befriend her. This is just the way she is. But should she really be so trustful?
Karla moves from her rural childhood home to the bustling city unwillingly when her parents lose their home to foreclosure. She makes new friends almost immediately. After they invite her to a party so she can go out on a date with the football captain, she convinces her parents to let her sleep over her newly made friend's house, Carol. Maybe she is a bit too trusting of these new friends of hers. She begins to have second thoughts about going to this party at the last minute. Maybe she shouldn't have been so trusting?
