A two-chapter story featuring a character with a physical disability (depicted pictorially by the girl having a 'key' in place of one of her legs). The first chapter is written from the perspective of another girl and shows how she observes the new arrival in school before they start to become friends. The second story is written from the disabled girl's viewpoint and shows how she is forced to find her own solutions for the everyday challenges she encounters, such as how to get into class at the same time as the rest of her peers.
