Katie Friedman Gives Up Texting! (And Lives to Tell About It)
Charlie Joe Jackson’s best friend Katie Friedman is tough, but can she convince her fellow middle schoolers to give up their phones for a week?
Breaking up is hard to do. It’s even harder when your boyfriend surprises you with front row tickets to your favorite band the moment you’re about to do the dirty deed. Which is why Katie decides maybe she doesn’t need to break up after all. At least, not today.
But when Katie’s best friend, Charlie Joe Jackson, starts texting her about the breakup – life turns upside down. Because Katie just made a big mistake. She sent the wrong text to the wrong person! Life can’t get any worse. And when Katie’s idol, Plain Jane, gets wind of her problem she makes her a deal: Get ten friends to give up their phones for one week and everyone gets backstage passes to her show and brought on stage. Katie’s one tough cookie, but she can hardly convince people to give up their phones for one hour let alone a whole week!
