Julie and Lydia are best friends who about to enter middle school, and they are determined to enter the year strong and be POPULAR. But when Lydia is sent to England due to her Mom's job, their plan hits a snag. A very sweet, funny read; this book will be best suited for the 10-13 age range. A hybrid novel, the novel is full of color drawings (the goods ones are done by Julie, stick figures by Lydia), emails, and diary entries recounting what happened in their day. The book is about fitting in, staying yourself, and being a good friend. Also, and this is just a personal note, I think that it is super cute that Julie is the adopted daughter of two gay men.

Just so you know, I hadn't read the first book but was easily able to understand what was going on.

Copy received at Texas Library Association conference.
