A MASSIVE argument erupted in the group creating a divide and causing everyone to spiral out of control. The tension of this argument has made everyone realize that the value of friendship is more important than any party theme. While working together to mend the broken bond, Meghan, Aidan, Crush, Shooster, Cassie, Arnold, and Phil all learn that the true meaning of friendship is sticking with each other through thick and thin, no matter what! Plan to attend!
