Katie loves school. That is, until a new girl who is also named Katie arrives. Now both girls, as well as the whole class are confused. Which Katie is supposed to lead the line, answer in class, or take a turn for jumping rope when her name is called? How will they solve this identity problem? While students enjoy reading this fun story about making compromises, they will also be learning about identifying problem and solution in a story and recognizing past-tense verbs.
