Jennifer’s class is getting ready to make Christmas decorations when Jennifer tells her teacher that she doesn’t celebrate Christmas, she celebrates Hanukkah. Mrs. Matthews has Jennifer make Hanukkah decorations instead and that night Jennifer is so proud of being the only one in her class that is Jewish that she makes up her own club called The Only One Club. She even makes herself a pin to wear that says “The Only One Club.” When her classmates see the pin they want to join too because they are the only one of something. Olivia Raven is the only one whose last name is a kind of bird and Jonah wants to join because he is the only kid in the class with red hair. Things start to go down hill and some of Jennifer’s classmates want to start a Not the Only One Club, but Jennifer has an idea and ends up inviting everyone in her class to join her club because they are all unique and the only one of something. She even makes badges for all of them…including Mrs. Matthews.
