A touching tale of friendship, understanding and finding the confidence to be yourself.
It's Ella's first day at her new school and that can only mean one thing: making new friends. But the challenge is even tougher than Ella thought, as the girls in her class just don't seem interested in her. When she stumbles across the book Five Ways to Make a Friend in the library, it's like all her prayers have been answered. With five excellent ideas up her sleeve, Ella will be friends with the girls in no time ... Right? But what if things don't quite work out as planned? And what if the friend Ella really needs has been there all along?
