Synopsis

When Cricket Kaufman breaks her ankle just before her spring-break vacation trip to Washington, D.C., she's stuck at home with prankster Lucas Cott instead of sightseeing with her best friend, Zoe. But when Cricket stirs up some mischief of her own, she learns that good friends can remain true even at the most unexpected times. Another winning installment in the 'Class Clown' series.
