it was ok
bookshelves: maybe-later-for-bea
Read in March, 2012

I previewed this. It has a lot to do with the traumas of moving and leaving friends and then the interpersonal dramas of mean girls/making friends/prejudices. Also deals with anti-semitism (she's Jewish and so is another girl in her new neighborhood.) Also - another round of Scarlet Fever in this story but it is dealt with a bit more drama and less explanation/comfort than All-of-A-Kind Family so could be more scary. Also - some pretty veiled stuff re: parents and their problems.

So - it wasn't bad but I don't think it is a required read and I would say it would be good for Bea for a few more years.
