In Whitney's next adventure, she's envious of the teacher's pet and so pulls a mean prank in order to become part of a clique at her new school. Whitney's subsequent feelings of guilt make her turn to the Emerald Bible, where she is whisked back to the time of Joseph and his brothers. Participating fully in the Biblical events, Whitney herself creates Joseph's many-colored coat, is with Jacob when he hears that his favorite son has been killed, then later travels to Egypt with the remaining brothers and uncovers Joseph's secret identity. Through it all she learns firsthand that nothing good ever comes from jealousy and that each person has his or her own special talents and gifts to offer. She brings these lessons back to her own time to help her confess to the prank and to resolve her own feelings of jealousy.
