Charlie Day is Jack’s best friend. What he likes about her most is the way she always speaks her mind. Even when it’s something he doesn’t want to hear… which happens to be quite often.
Charlie likes to announce her arrival at his house by hanging on the bell pull until everyone’s ears are ringing. On one occasion she has good cause. Jack has bunked off school and no-one knows where he is. Charlie’s convinced he’s in trouble. And, even though he seems to be avoiding her, she’d ride her red bike to the ends of the earth to help him.
