When Gregory moves away, Carrie no longer finds rollerblading quite so much fun. At school, the popular kids make fun of her and her bookish friend Laura, so Carrie changes herself in an attempt to fit in. Carrie alienates all of her friends with her behaviour, but when Giselle, the most popular girl in school, spreads vicious rumours about her, Carrie learns what matters to her the most. This illustrated chapter book by Nova Scotia author Lesley Choyce was published in Nova Scotia and is the second book about Carrie.
