However, she is ready to explore her surroundings and start eighth grade at Jefferson Middle School.

Ironically, the school year begins on the wrong foot when an obnoxious girl and her friends begin to harass Olivia. This new bully, Leslie Thompson, is determined to make Olivia’s life miserable. But, one day as she walks home from school, Olivia discovers the popular community garden. Almost immediately, she becomes friends with the people who regularly frequent the garden to hang out together.

Find out how blossoming friendships among the garden people help Olivia to face her fears and survive eighth grade.
