Peony is 9 and she lived in a farm with her gramps and Mags ( her sister ). She has a poor life but is happy where she is. She wants to be a bee when she is older.
Peony gets stolen by her Ma from the farm and is bought to the city even though she doesen't want to go.
Peony is forced by Ma on the bus and Peony is really upset and Mad because she wanted to be at the farm and become a bee.
Come on Ez, it's not scary.
The ape steals Peony with Ma because The ape and Ma are working together in order to steal Peony and bring her to the farm.
Peony ends up in a girls house named Esmeralda. When Esmeralda meets Peony she doesn't like her because peony was really lazy but sometimes Esmeralda is really rude.
Esmeralda never wanted to leave her house and go out onto the streets because she was scared that people were going to hurt her or even steal her. So peony took her out to he street and now she is really confident and this boosted their friendship. The are really good freiends now.
