In this one, Jessica Wakefield uses a girl's disability for her own personal gain

What a delightful child

Jessica is primarily used as a 'you-don't-want-to-behave-this-way' type of example although, at times, short times, she can display a nicer personality. In this story a new girl has arrived at school and her name is Pamela Jacobson. She has a heart condition that limits what she can do physically.

She had been at a school for 'special needs' students, but she wanted to go to a regular school and her father has allowed it on a trial basis. Pamela is unhappy, though, that she can't participate in a

I love this series and I am so glad that I had the time to read them. I used to read them using a flashlight when it got to be past lights out.

This book gives you a sense of what it is like to be extremely disabled

Jessica hurts her ankle and can't compete in the mini Olympics, so she decides some non-athletic events should be put in, so she CAN compete, and she kind of uses this other girl in her class who can't do sport as her back-up so everyone thinks she's being all good and inclusive when really she just wants to win stuff.

The most surprising thing about this book is that it actually represents disability surprisingly well. Given the ~tragically heroic~ Regina of Sweet Valley High, it's nice to see Pamela and her heart condition portrayed as an average kind of kid, complete with faults. Lots of fun Jess & Lila rivalry in this one too.
From "Books I have read this summer" list that I found at home in NJ.
I think this book was okay. But it is a little boring.
