Book Report by Kate Bergen
On the first day of school, Sam meets a girl named Caroline and they become good friends. Caroline decides to show Sam the "Poets Corner" which is a place where people who don't have many friends can go and read poetry, but when she gets down there, AJ is hesitant to let her in. In order to get into the group, Sam has to read a poem in front of everyone, so she starts writing poetry with Caroline. The Crazy Eights group is starting to fall apart and all they do is argue.
AJ and Sam become really good friends, but one day when she mentions Caroline's name to him, he suddenly freaks out. He tells her that Caroline Madsen has been dead for eight years. Sam rushes to get help from her friend, Sue and she tries to help her. Sam thinks that everyone will no longer want to be friends with her, but everyone tries to help her get back to her normal self.
