When a group of Jeri McKane's friends help Abby present a birthday dinner for her home-ec project, the party ends up in the trashcan ... literally. Is it just an unfortunate event, or have the friends been intentionally poisoned? Jeri's instinct says something isn't right, and the girls follow a trail that leads to some not-so-sweet evidence. Tween girls can wonder why God doesn't step in when meanness and injustice happens. This story helps them see how he often uses ordinary people to help uncover the truth!
