Joyce doesn't mind living near a garbage dump. What she does mind is the endless teasing she has to endure from the kids at school, who call her the Dump Queen. Yet being different doesn't seem to bother Mrs. Fish, the new school custodian, and she turns out to be the one person who understands what it's like to be an outsider. This delightful, unforgettable story celebrates the joy of finding friendship in unlikely places.
