It's Only A Test: What constitutes a real test in life? Jessica is fully prepped for her SATs and is on her way to take them when she encounters one stranger after another who needs help: a blind man trying to find the subway, a fashionable woman frantically looking for her "baby" (a poodle in pink bows) and a young boy afraid his grandmother is going to die. Jessica obliges all and realizes dejectedly that she will be late for the test, but she learns that by helping others she has helped herself. *** A Well Taught Lesson: With a respectful nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald's Bernice Bobs Her Hair, this lesson in standing up for yourself and not letting others take advantage of you is ideal for high schools. Becky arrives from Indonesia to spend her junior year with her popular cousin Owen, who will get the BMW of her dreams only if she makes sure Becky feels included. Gwen reluctantly educates Becky about current popularity prerequisites and she succeeds all too well.
