As you probably can tell this book is about two girls named Ivy and Bean, and is book 1 in a series. Bean isn't interested in meeting the new girl across the street because she thinks she looks boring. Then she decides to play a trick on her older sister and the new girl, Ivy, comes to her rescue. The girls realize that neither of them are what the other thought they would be and that together they actually make a pretty good team. Ivy is into magic and spells. Bean is a little on the wild side.
