Go Go is confident and creative about her clothes, even though most of them are hand-me-downs from her three older brothers. The only new things she ever gets are underwear and shoes. That's why she loves new shoes, especially her latest and most precious silver shoes. But despite her mother's warnings, Go Go wears them on a family picnic and loses one in the creek. Go Go is devastated, but continues to wear her one remaining silver shoe, until one day a new girl at school realises that she has one just like it...

A beautiful story about being confidently individual and about the power of friendship.Go Go is confident and creative about her clothes, even though most of them are hand-me-downs from her three older brothers.
