Charlotte is starting Middle School at Beecher Prep and she gets asked to be a welcome buddy for a new boy since the principal heard that she was a very sweet girl.
The main point of this story is that Charlotte started Middle School and everyone has conflicts with each other. There is a "Boys War" and girls have drama all the time. Charlotte is always afraid to speak up so that's why she stayed neutral.
But I don't understand! that award goes to summer!
When she started Middle School, Charlotte decided that she was going to do a dance from the 1960s'. She has already done dance before so she'll most likely make it.
When Charlotte auditioned for the dance from the 1960s', she made it! But when she looked at the list of the girls who made it, this girl (Summer) also made it! Charlotte was surprised because Summer just started taking dance!
A girl who doesn't want to be friends with Charlotte (Ximena) made the dance too. A group of kids who bully Auggie and Jack are being bullied by a group of popular that includes Ximena too.
Charlotte talks to Ximena to resolve all the drama between girls and after she did that, Charlotte refuses to be the Beecher Prep Student of The Year and tells Mr. Tushman that this award goes to Summer because she was so nice to Auggie.
