This year Kate was going to have the best birthday party.
The only trouble was her parents insisted she invite her whole class...
"I can't invite Violet," said Kate. "She's so bossy, she always wants everyone to do everything her way."
"Just boss her back," said Kate's dad.
Kate sighed. That was easy for her dad to say. No one could boss Violet back. Violet always got her way.
When Violet thinks that she isn't invited to Kate's birthday party, she spreads rumors that threaten to ruin everything.
Kate has decided on a pirate theme for her party. She thinks that seven is going to be the best age to be. Her friend Jake is going to teach her to ride a two-wheeler. And her party is going to be fabulous. That is, until Violet starts spreading stories. Kate goes right on with her planning, but she is worried. When Violet is the only one to show up on the big day, Kate thinks that her worst fears have come true.
