Here’s the description of the story from Archie Comics:
“A BRAND-NEW STORY kicks off this collection of fun-in-the-sun stories about pool, beach bashes and more, all hosted by Betty & Veronica! In ‘What’s the Word?’ Veronica’s planning on throwing the BIGGEST pool party ever. She’s been working on it for months, and now the big day is almost here . . . but no one seems to be that interested. Everyone’s too consumed with beating each other’s streak on a brand-new app called ‘Wordeel.’ Can Veronica get everyone into the spirit so her pool party can actually make a splash?”
