I usually read and review MG/YA books, but this coming year I will be working with K-6 students so I am expanding my reading.

Alfie doesn't care for the drama emerging in her 2nd grade class, but she can't escape it. She is faced with the girl drama in her class every single day and she has to try and figure out how to help each girl involved so that they can all just go back to things being like they were in 1st grade. Alfie has to works with her teacher and parents to get things back on track. The book inspires courage, friendship, family conversations and working hard even when it isn't easy.
