The book I chose for popular series was from the American Girl series and is "Meet Julie". Julie is a girl from 1974, whose parents divorced and made her move across town, away from her friends. She plays basketball and wants to play on the school team, but it is for boys only, and her Dad does not think it is a good idea. So, she starts a petition, which her best friend helps her fill out, but Ivy gets upset and deserts Julie. But Julie keeps going, and takes the petition to the basketball coach who rips it up and throws it away. Julie and T.J., her new friend, go through the trash and find the petition to take to hte principal. The principal takes it to the school board, who allow her to be on the team. Her best friend also writes a petition, to become her best friend again. There is also a history lesson at the back of the book with actual facts from the time period. There are several illustrations that are depicting the key scenes of the book. I think this book would be good for third or fourth grade girls, who are interested in sports.
