Summary
My name is Christy but nobody calls me that. I'm in the same class with another girl named Christie, so I've become just the other Christy, the spare Christy. Not the popular, loud one everyone likes. Just once I'd like to be noticed, and have a real friend. Someone I can bake treats for and who just gets me and my weird fussy Grandpa at home. Could that person ever really be Christie? Could I be friends with my enemy?
Summary
For the last two years, Christy Ung has been in the same class as the loud-mouthed Christie Owens -- and now it's 3rd time unlucky in 6C. Christie Owens is the popular one so everybody calls Christy Ung, the Other Christy. She moved from Cambodia in Year 4 and is still a loner at school. Christy's one solace is baking with her Auntie who suggests they bake a cake for Christy to share with her class on her birthday. Maybe a sweet treat can win them over and Christy might find a friend. She just didn't expect it to be Christie
