Debbie and her best friend, Maureen Berck, have grown up together in the same small town, and it seems as if they will be inseparable forever. One summer, though, Maureen’s new relationship with classmate Glenna puts their friendship in jeopardy. The day after Debbie returns from a family vacation, the three girls go to a carnival.
Glenna and Maureen would keep hanging out with each other and would keep going on rides with each other and wouldn't include Debbie. Debbie felt like that Glenna was trying to take Maureen away from her. But even though seh didn't like Glenna she still offered them fries.
As Glenna's mom dropped Debbie off at her house she saw Maureen and Glenna talking behind her. As she would later find out, it would be about Maureen going on vacation with Glenna.
Glenna's mom tells both of the girls where Glenna and Maureen where they are going for vacation, Borth Lake. Debbie said that she didn't hear the rest of the stuff that Glenna's mom said but when she did hear some of it they ended in exclamation points.
Debbie got out of the car, she said that she had to do something really quick but Maureen knew something was wrong. She got out of the car with Debbie and they went to talk at the lake.
After Debbie and Maureen get done talking Debbie says that she wants to spend every moment that she can with Glenna and that her charm would eventually ward off Glenna.
