The teacher, Mrs. Hanson, ins very strict. Fractions are impossible. And Jenny is assigned as Elsie's guide in school. Nothing's fair!

But Elsie urns out to be a math genius. She helps Jenny learn fractions. Elsie's diet begins to work. Then Jenny and her friends discover that Elsie's fat really covers up a good friend. Nothing's fair--but some things are not as bad as they seem!
