It's not easy being Bindy Mackenzie. It's not her fault that she's the cleverest girl in school, and she's tired of having no friends ­ Bindy's learning the hard way that being nice doesn't equal being popular. So it's time for a change - she's going to do whatever it takes to make people like her, even if it means being the opposite of nice . . .
