The Defense Techniques teacher tests the girls on their survival skills, leaving them in the Forest of Colors overnight. They use a manual she has left them to build shelter and cook dinner. Electra wanders from the group in the night and gets lost, sending the rest of the Melowies on a mission to find her. They split up and use different skills to pass the test.
Upon returning to Destino they learn that the missing Melowy was all part of the test of frienship. They all passed with flying colors, even with their rival Melowy Eris trying to foil their plans.
Danielle Star has done a bit of everything. She's been an assistant cook at a famous French pastry shop, the head editor of a fashion magazine, and a dance teacher. Once she started writing, though, she's never stopped. Today she lives in the English countryside with her five horses, her cat Sugar Cube, and her dog Fluffy. Every morning before she starts writing, she drinks a big wild strawberry smoothie and reads a good book.
