Good things come in threes. That's how best friends Lindsey, Bella, and Kate usually feel. But sometimes three doesn't always feel so fun…

  • Three means if the teacher says to pick partners, it's a race to see who can catch eyes first.
  • Three means if you can ask only one friend to spend the night, you're forced to make a hard choice.
  • Three means if you have a fight, one of you is stuck in the middle.

Lindsey, Bella, and Kate stumble over these and other common friendship dilemmas, making amends, finding solutions, expanding their circle, and becoming even better friends than before.
