Maisie has been friends with Shakes, Chris, and Kevin since they were in elementary school. But after returning from a year living with her father, Maisie has filled out and her friendship with the boys becomes strained. Then a story gets out about how the boys touched Maisie on the back of the bus, and suddenly her step-mother has hired a lawyer, Maisie has to see a shrink, and school and her friendships will never be the same. But what really happened on the back of the bus?

This story revolves around Maisie and her recollections of the incident on the back of the bus. It is about friendships and coming of age, about anger and betrayal, and how things get out of control. Pretty good story, though a bit weak at times.
