Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Carol had lived all her life in an apartment, and now they were moving to a real house where she would have her own room. The house was an old one, with a lot of work to be done on it before it would be livable, and Carol followed its progress eagerly. Her friends were as excited as she was, and when they discovered an old playhouse hidden in a mass of overgrown bushes and vines, they decided at once to start a club. Prejudice springs to life as a neighbor girl (Pam) makes it clear that people who went to the synagogue instead of to church were not welcome in the neighborhood. Slowly, Carol begins to understand that prejudice often comes from not knowing enough about people, and in the end--through the club activities--she and Pam grow to respect and like each other.
