Belonging to the V.I.G.'s and B.'s—the Very Important Girls and Boys—is the ultimate achievement in Lizabeth's sixth-grade class. Of course, being a V.I.G. or B. has a price. It often means being something she isn't or saying things she doesn't mean.

But the price doesn't seem too high—until she comes to know a boy who for no accountable reason has become a class outcast. When Lizabeth's friendship with him grows, she finds her loyalties torn, trying to keep the secret friendship from the V.I.G.'s and B.'s.

NLAPW Children's Book Award.

"...discovering that a classroom pariah can become a friend is treated deftly and perceptively." (Center for Children's Books)
