Lilly would like to buy her friend Minna a very special birthday present from a jewellery store. It's price is $1000! When Lilly and her mother go to the farmers' market they see a similar bracelet at an affordable price and Lilly gives it to Minna at her birthday party. Their friend Theresa then starts a rumour that Lilly stole the expensive bracelet and Minna is very upset and won't talk to Lilly.

In this new book about Lilly and her friends, Lilly's best wishes for her friend become a nightmare of rumours.

Editorial Reviews

CM: Canadian Review of Materials
"Bellingham's narrative eloquently conveys the often painful and unpredictable environment in which young children, particularly girls, try to sort out their relationships with their friends. The book explores the volatility of young friendship and playground politics in uncomplicated language that young readers will appreciate."
