This is a beautiful, layered story that shows how two good friends can inspire perseverance in each other, but
there is also so much more to this story. Best friends Sofia and Maddi live in the same neighborhood, go to the
same school, and play in the same park, but while Sofia’s fridge at home is full of nutritious food, the fridge at
Maddi’s house is empty. Sofia learns that Maddi’s family doesn’t have enough money to fill their fridge and
promises Maddi she’ll keep this discovery a secret. But because Sofia wants to help her friend, she’s faced with
a difficult decision: to keep her promise or tell her parents about Maddi’s empty fridge. There are so many
lessons of friendship, empathy, perseverance, and honesty in this story.
