B eth, Eddie, and Tess are just about the least likely friends imaginable. Beth is confident and popular, though a trifle manipulative and lonely. Eddie is shy, but kind and interested in other people. Tess is at her fifth school in five years. As the child of a psychologist, she has learned the ‘science of friendship,” but doesn’t know how to apply it to her own life. However unlikely their friendship is, by the end of their school program on Valentine’s Day, each will learn a lesson about making and keeping friends, empathy, and the difference between friendship and popularity.
