has to finish twenty pages before tomorrow's class if she's going to keep her A. It's difficult, but Ashlee decides to stay home and work while Jenelle goes to the concert. It takes a long time, but Ashlee finally finishes her pages and feels good about her decision.
The next day, before Social Studies class, Jenelle's freaking. She tells Ashlee that because of the concert, she couldn't finish her workbook. "Can I copy yours?" she asks Ashlee. Ashlee knows that this is risky, because their teacher will probably notice that their answers are the same. "It's not fair," she thinks. "Why should Jenelle get to go to the concert and hand in her work on time, when I had to choose between them?" She tells Jenelle no, and Jenelle gets so upset that she says she doesn't want to be friends anymore.
