Meet Emily, and her new friend—sort of . . .

Emily loves her shiny black lunch bag—the jewels, the way it sparkles. But one day a new school bus picks her up, and in the confusion she forgets her lunch bag on the bus. Will she get a ticket, like that loud girl Vincetta Louise said? Or will Emily be forced to eat the Secret Lunch Special?

From fickle friendships to mystery meat, kids everywhere will identify with Emily as she navigates the rough waters of second grade.
