Alicia has four friends, and her friends are great, but when she decides to throw a best friends party, they all want to know which one of them is her best friend. Is it Mitchell, Charlotte, Henry, Lucy, or Alicia’s dog, Neptune? They say she has to choose, but Alicia doesn’t know whom to pick. How can she, when each one of them is uniquely special to her? With characteristic emotional honesty and a little creativity, Alicia finds her own wonderful way of solving the happy dilemma of being blessed with not one, but many, best friends.
