On her way home from school, Cassie sees that someone posted a sign that says that they're looking for a lost parrot. The parrot's original owners said that they would give seven hundred dollars to the person who found it. Cassie tries to get her friends Jane and Anna to help her find the parrot. Anna thinks they shouldn't take the parrot back to the owners since she knows the owners don't treat the parrot well. Jane thinks they should return the parrot and split the money three ways evenly. Cassie isn't sure what to do about the parrot. Will she and her friends find the parrot? Will they return it to its owners? Will arguing about what to do with the parrot hurt their friendship?
