When You're Right, You're Right
Emily Jones is usually right about everything – from solving mysteries to cooking chili. But when she decides to try her hand at matchmaking for her brother Barrett, the singing card she creates may have disastrous consequences.
Emily Jones is not afraid to make her ideas known. She tells her dad how his chili is, and tries to give Barrett advice on how to get his "first love". She learns that Matthew Parker is helping Barrett make a card for a girl. Emily "fixes" the card, making it what a girl wants. She gives it to Matthew to give to Barrett. When she sees Barrett giving the card, she thinks that she did the right thing. Matthew then tells her that he changed the card back to how it originally was. Emily is upset, but soon gets over it by talking to her brother.
