Lilly would like to buy her friend Minna a very special birthday present from a jewellery store. It's price is $1000! When Lilly and her mother go to the farmers' market they see a similar bracelet at an affordable price and Lilly gives it to Minna at her birthday party. Their friend Theresa then starts a rumour that Lilly stole the expensive bracelet and Minna is very upset and won't talk to Lilly. The bracelet that she hoped Minna would wear at her piano recitals has broken up their friendship.
In this new book about Lilly and her friends, Lilly's best wishes for her friend become a nightmare of rumours.
