Description

TJ and his friends are having a great time playing out! But TJ can't help but notice that his friend Itani keeps picking on him and invading his personal space. TJ wants to ask Itani to stop, but he is afraid he's overreacting. During a sleepover at Itani's house, TJ realizes that he needs to be honest with Itani about how his behaviour makes TJ feel.
