Read in January, 2008

I didn't like this...or dislike it. It's the portrayal of a friendship between two 3rd grade girls. While most girls have experienced the ups and downs in a friendship that these girls experience, thus cementing its wide appeal, the book didn't really offer a fresh perspective.

What I did appreciate was the portrayal of African-American girls without changing their vernacular or blatantly pointing it out in the text. This could be very popular in most of our branches, and I'll certainly buy a lot of copies.
