Spider Stevens and Trey Cooper have been friends forever. But can their friendship survive the fifth grade? Spider Stevens and Trey Cooper have lived next door to each other their entire lives. Their houses are on the odd-numbered side of Maple Street, which seems just about right. Because Trey Cooper is a little odd himself. It didn't matter when they were little kids — you know, way back in second grade. And it doesn't matter so much when they're at home on Maple Street. That's just Trey being Trey. But it matters in the fifth grade. The whole class thinks Trey is weird. Does that mean Spider has to turn his back on his oldest friend?
