Living in the city with his grandma Jeremy really wants a new pair of shoes that are all the rage. He wants them even more when his shoes break at school and he is stuck wearing a pair of kindergarten shoes that have a character on them from a show that no one even watches. Jeremy's grandma will get him a regular pair of shoes, but he wants a new pair that is just to expensive so he decides to look at the local thrift store. After finding the shoes that he wants at the thrift store he buys them despite the fact that they are to small for his feet. However, they are the perfect size for his friend and Jeremy must now decide between keeping the shoes for himself and giving them to his friend.

This book is a great lesson in sharing and shows how friendship can outweigh being popular.
