From jacket: "Seventh grade is rough on Stella Kim. Eileen Englehart has a (corps of new popular friends), so Stella barely fits in with the popular girls at school. Her father has quit engineering to open a dry-cleaning store with her mom...Grandmother expects Stella to act Korean...Smart-aleck Rachel, her backup friend, tells Stella to stand up for herself. On the edge of popularity, Stella wonders whether to risk everything and do just that." Several awkwardly written passages.

Another book about choosing your friends well. A second generation immigrant tries to fit in with wealthy Anglo in girls, torn between her old world grandmother, family loyalty, real friends and being popular. It seemed a bit pat, but good morals.
