Debbie has been best friends with Maureen for such a long time. Debbie feels like their friendship is in jeopardy, because Maureen has met a new friend. Since Debbie is no longer on family vacation she decides to take all three of them to the carnival.
Something Debbie didn't like at the carnival is, how there are always two people rides. Since there were three of them someone had wait for the ride to end. Debbie watched Glenna and Maureen on the ride laughing without her. After the ride Debbie offered them some french fries. Maureen ate some fries but, Glenna said no because she didn't eat greasy food.
Debbie would feel left out sometimes. She would feel left out because when she would call Maureen, Glenna would already be on the phone with her. Then when Maureen wasn't on the phone with Glenna. They would be at Glenna's house so Maureen wouldn't answer the phone.
After the carnival, they head to a campsite. In the car Debbie feels more lonely. She asks Mrs.Flaiber to stop, when she gets out of the car Maureen gets out too. She can tell something is bothering Debbie.
Debbie tells her what's bothering her. Maureen tells Debbie that Glenna tries to be friends with her, but Debbie denies it.
Maureen tries to cheer Debbie up. Debbie still isn't sure if they are friends still or not.
