Josie is excited about her friend Ceci coming to her house to play. Will her feelings change when Ceci does not act like the guest Josie imagined? In I'm the Guest, students read about a friend who takes advantage of an invitation and acts selfishly. Children will easily relate to Josie's feelings of confusion and frustration. The complications of friendship provide a rich story that teachers can use to lead students in analyzing character and retelling.
