About the Book

Through the clever use of rhyme and metaphor, the story explores the homey neighborhood of Jasmine Simone, Sarah, Nicholas, Henry and Linda. Friends forever, they embark on a treasure hunt for rocks and soon discover the beauty found in nature and in themselves. Jasmine Simone and her friends soon realize that they are not stony or lonely like the rocks initially were, but are “friends forever." And the rocks are no longer considered to be stony or lonely, but beautiful and wonderful.
