Callie has just started middle school, where everyone else seems to know the rules. She doesn't. So funny/sad, confident/doubtful, brash/timid, but most of all independent Callie sets out to write some rules of her own.
But Callie's not the only one writing new rules. When the town council proposes a rule banning Halloweena holiday that Callie and her family have a unique, and much loved way of celebratingCallie is forced to take a stand. And she learns that, in order to stand up for what she believes, like Jane, she might have to defy some rules.
