Her Story: When April gets sick, Annabella, next
in line, is excited at her chance to prove her worth
to not only the entire community, but especially

coming from a rich family give her the image of a snob
and no one seems to like her... except for the widely-popular
Joanne, whom Annabella realizes is not the Queen Bee she
appears to be.

popular young person among the Nature Family.

her - but if April survives her illness, Annabella
will have to leave.

to join the fun.

terrible cost.)

Description: jealous, over-achiever

the twelve of them after the festivities of the Day of the
Seasons could help bring them back together.
