Mallory, eight years old, is crushed to be moving away from her best friend, Mary Ann. They've been neighbors all their lives, and they do everything together, like painting their toenails, making scrapbooks, and saying important things three times. When Mallory moves away, she promises not to make friends with any boys who live next door to her. When she arrives in her new house on Wish Pond Road, though, the only cool kid in her neighborhood is her next door neighbor, a boy! Will making a wish on the wish pond in her neighborhood help her save her friendship with Mary Ann? Look for other books about Mallory by Laurie Friedman including Back to School, Mallory and Mallory vs. Max.
