Sneaking into the room Tracy manages to break Justine's clock, and when she hears Justine and her old best friend, Louise Goven, coming she runs away.

Justine is devastated and furious, especially as her Dad gave her the clock and he is coming later. Ryan and Zac promise to fix the clock, but time is running out, will it be mended in time? Tracy meets a boy, Ben, while out, and is impressed by his huge quantities of chocolate.
