Middle school, middle child, in the middle of her parents divorce and feeling left behind and left out, and smack dab in the middle of it all! Caught between a new group of popular friends and her best friend with special needs, she is torn about what to do! Will she make the right decision? Someone's feelings might get hurt in the process, including her own. Nobody's perfect, and we all make mistakes. Can Molly make the right choice?
