Heather arrives at Miss Benson's apartment for her good deed for the summer and meets Risa. Risa (the girl who lives in the apartment next door) invites herself to come.
They enter Miss Benson's apartment. Miss Benson gives them cookies and lemonade and they talk. Heather says she will read to Miss Benson.
Heather reads to Miss Benson and Risa tells an eye bouquet. Then Heather says she has to leave but she will come back. When Heather leaves she hides the book so Risa can't find it if she comes back before Heather comes back.
When Heather returns she looks for the book she was reading for Miss Benson. When it is missing she thinks Risa took it. So she says she has to leave and goes to Risa's apartment.
Heather goes to Risa's apartment, meets her little brothers, and finds the book. But Risa is not there. Heather doesn't know where Risa went.
Risa comes back and says she took her sick baby brother to the doctor. Heather finds out that Miss Benson gave Risa the book and that Risa is very nice. So Heather stays and reads with Risa to Risa's little brothers.
