Lizabeth & her friends all live in a dirty run down town. They are all messing around and decide to ruin the mean old lady marigolds. Lizabeth is very immature and doesn't care that the flowers will be ruined and same as all her friends.
The lady catches them destroying the flowers and they all run away. Lizabeth was having fun but then she feels bad that the flowers were ruined. Later that night Lizabeth was eating dinner with her dad and brother. When her mom came home Lizabeths dad started talking to her and actually crying. When she saw that her dad was jobless and crying she realized that she needs to change because the real world is not easy.
Many years later Lizabeth is now an adult and sense she has learned from her mistakes she is very mature now. She also planted marigolds too and is very happy.
