Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
Emma and Annie Pat have been best friends for three months, even since class mean girl Cynthia dumped Emma in favor of two other girls. So when new girl Krysten moves into the school, Emma figures that she and Annie should befriend her. Cynthia, however, has other plans, and Emma finds herself facing off against her nemesis as both try to win Krysten's friendship. As she works to entice "Kry" (Krysten's nickname) into a friendship, Emma spends less time with Annie Pat. The final straw for Annie Pat occurs when Emma pre-empts their trip to Marine Universe, inviting Kry to the movies instead. Hurt and confused, Annie Pat tells Emma that she's done with their friendship and done with Emma. Emma suddenly realizes that she must rethink what makes a friendship and what price she is willing to pay to get Kry to like her. This story is a solid one for younger girls who tend to deal with issues like this on a regular basis. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

Gr 2-4
Emma returns in another installment about the true-to-life troubles of third-grade girls. She and her friend Annie Pat are looking forward to a great weekend visit to a marine aquarium. When a new girl arrives in class, Emma decides to try to win her over before her nemesis, Cynthia, can. Forgetting about her plans with her best friend and neglecting to ask her mom first, Emma tries to impress Krysten with an invitation to lunch out and a movie on Saturday. Furious, Annie Pat cancels the trip. When Emma's mother finds out what happened, she helps her daughter to understand that she treated Annie Pat poorly and makes Emma write apology letters instead of going anywhere. Although her feelings are terribly hurt, Annie Pat eventually forgives Emma, and their friendship is saved. Harper's whimsical drawings add humor and warmth to the story. Told in first-person narrative, the story will appeal to fans of Judy Moody, Amber Brown, and such. However, Emma is not very likable here. And with practically no action other than the girls' catty behavior, most readers will not find the story intriguing enough to persevere to the end.
