THE CHAIN HAT
Written by Bree Ann Prezioso
Some say it’s the thought that counts, not the gift itself. Nicole discovers a unique black hat at her favorite dress shop. She decides to give it away as a birthday present, and the magic begins! The black hat passes along from friend to friend. Each time, the girls make a special improvement, which ultimately transforms the “ugly” hat into the “beautiful, popular” hat, just in time for the big school dance!
There's an inner beauty inside all of us waiting to be discovered!
