Magic Tree House
Junie B. Jones
Kate and Liz have been best friends forever and as far as they know nothing will ever change that. But all of a sudden, Kate starts avoiding Liz. She’s not answering Liz’s phone calls, skipping lunch at school, being too busy to hang out with Liz after school, avoiding Liz in the halls, and refusing to go to Liz’s house. Liz is hurt and confused because she doesn’t understand why or what has happened that has caused such a break in their relationship. Finally, Kate tells Liz that Liz’s older brother, Mike, raped her. Kate doesn’t know who or what to believe and before she knows it, she is involved in a trial that tears her family, the school and the small town they live in apart. How will life ever be normal again?
