It was interesting to see Liz and Enid reacting to a changed Amy. At least Liz found out that Amy is no longer the same Amy who had been her best friend back in grade school. Too bad that Amy came off as more vicious than Jessica is much later in the series.

I liked the way the book conveyed Enid's jealousy of Amy but, also at the same time, she was portrayed as being insecure and threatened by the return of Liz's "best friend". But sometimes I do feel that Liz deserves a more multifaceted perso
Let me make sure I have this right: Amy is just like Jessica. Jessica is well meaning and forgivable. Amy is the spawn of Satan's mean-ass monkey seed. We all apply generous amounts of 'blusher.'

Amy Sutton VS Enid Rollins and Liz is caught in the middle!

Read the drinking game and review here.
I never really cared about Amy, and Enid is as boring as white bread, and Elizabeth is a pain, so this one sucks. I think I've only read it once.
I never wanted to stop reading these. They are like a great old friend. I can pick up where I left off...

This is the one where Elizabeth realizes her old friend Amy Sutton is a total bitch now. Sad but realistic ;)

I can't believe it, but I remember this book. I think I read almost the whole series.

Fun reading for the early teen years. Loved them from the age of 12 - 15

Each time I would read these books someone in the book is the better twin.
I always wondered how Amy Sutton came into the mix in the later books
Another lovely Enid book.
