"That's not your name," the girl beside me said as I was hanging up my coat. She was reading my sweater.
"Maybe Alexandria is my middle name," I said.
Janie's mother started a knitting business just so Janie's family could move and Janie could go to a better school. But Janie is poorer than her new classmates, and she doesn't fit in. When her mother's business falls apart, Janie thinks of a way to help her family. But it means she will stand out even more. Is she strong enough to face the challenge?
This is the heartwarming story of a girl whose belief in her family enables her to risk embarrassment -- and to make new friends.
