For some kids, the playground is a place of fun and friendship. For others, it is a source of anxiety and fear. The fear of being left out.

We take an in-depth look with Why Will No One Play With Me? author Caroline Maguire. We also talk about the realities of adult friendships with NPR's Julia Furlan.
