A Better Story of Friendship

4 stars

This is a much better story of friendship, particularly as it's solution to making friends isn't that you have to be friends with people who exclude you. It's kind of refreshing in a way that a children's book would say that you can go find other people who've been excluded and befriend them; it's also nice to see them say that, if you can't join a club, you can create your own.

This only goes so far as a lesson, but I do like the ideals of voluntary association being present.
