It all begins when Grandma Gussie invites Mr. Adler to dinner one Friday night. Mr. Adler is a new neighbor. But he and Grandma Gussie knew each other in grammar school. Grandma Gussie spends a lot of time Mr. Adler, time that she would have spent with Ruthie, That's only one reason why Ruthie doesn't like Mr. Adler.

This heartwarming story by Laurie A.
