The Secret

Everybody in Jessica's English class makes fun of Daphne. She never says a word to anyone — just walks around with her nose in a book, with her long straggly hair hanging over her face. Now the worst thing has happened. The teacher has assigned Jessica to be partners with Daphne in the Write-A-Book contest!

But being forced to work with the class "weirdo", Jessica gets an even bigger surprise. Not only does Daphne talk to her, but she tells Jessica a terrible secret...one that Jessica knows could be very dangerous to keep.

Synopsis:

Jessica is not thrilled when she is paired with her weird classmate Daphne. But Jessica is in for a pleasant surprise when she spends afternoons with Daphne and her little sister, Hope. Jessica also comes to discover Daphne's tragic secret on which Daphne has her swear to secrecy. But when the secret becomes a threat to Daphne and Hope, Jessica is torn between her friendship and doing what she knows is best.
