Overview

The first Super Special in this popular series marks a major turning point: Abby graduates from fifth grade and prepares for middle school. *Fabulous full-color insert: Abby's fifth grade yearbook!*

After thirteen books, Abby is finally graduating from fifth grade. There's a lot to do before the big event, including finding the perfect graduation outfit. Once the ceremony is over, Abby plans to spend a quiet summer preparing for sixth grade. Then Abby's mother college friend, Laurie, and her young daughter, Wynter, arrive for an extended stay. Laurie--a musician--is trying to get her career back on track. She expects Abby to care for Wynter while she's out. Before long, Abby gets fed up. Abby's mom confronts Laurie, and Abby is able to reclaim her pre-middle school summer.

The big day has finally arrived for Abby Hayes as she graduates from fifth-grade! First she needs to find the perfect graduation outfit with her friend Hannah and then make plans for a wonderful summer vacation. But finding the perfect outfit was easy in comparison to the tumultuous interruption that is about to invade her home and her vacation plans. When Mom's unexpected company arrives with weird eating habits, strange behavior and over-the-top babysitting duties, Abby wonders if she will ever have a relaxing day to herself. The biggest problem is that her Mom does not see any of this—or does she? This paperback is a fun read for anyone who has had to put up with not-so-wonderful company. Abby's journal entries add extra angst as she describes in great detail how miserable her life has become. The addition of Abby's fifth-grade yearbook also adds a nice touch for readers with a page for friends to write their own messages. 2004, Scholastic Inc/Apple Paperbacks, Ages 9 to 12.

I recomedend this book to people who like to hide from wierd house guests during the summer. I also recomend this book for people that love to read.

I love all Abby Hayes books, but this one is one of my favorites, because it is different from all the others. I love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter, and those quotes really sum up the events of the chapter. I think this book is very realistic and relatable. I think Abby has a great, quirky personality. I like how nothing is the way you expect it to be. You would expect Olivia Hayes' college friend Laurie to eccentric and artistic, like Mrs. Hayes described her. But she turns out to be a health fanatic and very annoying. The only issue I had with this book is that Abby and her friend Hannah go shopping alone at the mall, and they are only in fifth grade. I know that most kids almost finished fifth grade would not be allowed to shop in a mall alone, even ones that are very responsible. Otherwise, I loved the book!

This was one of the best books in the series. It was a bit short but thats ok. The yearbook in was very intersting though it was not very realistic because it only displayed some students that were only in two different classes. This book is GREAT! ^^(2 thumbs up)

This is one of the best series I have ever read. Abby has always been so great to keep up with, I will never forget this series. Abby has been in 5th grade for about 4 summers, so this is a great change. I hope Anne Mazer writes more books in this series, and I am looking forward to them. I really suggest this series, if you want a good read.
