Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Woo
In this second in the "Frenemies" series, Avalon and Halley are reunited once again as best friends. Armed with their new blog, the Style Snarks, Avalon and Halley think nothing can tear them apart again. But their friendship quickly encounters some challenges. When Halley's crush, Wade, finally asks her out on a date, her happiness is complicated by the fact that they must keep their relationship a secret from Wade's ex-girlfriend and Halley's friend, Sofee. Avalon and Halley come up with a plan to distract Sofee from the truth: Avalon will pretend that she's interested in Wade and flirt with him continuously. In return, Halley will help Avalon become captain of the newly formed cheerleading squad by undermining the current captain, Brianna. In order to do this, they must convince the whole school that they are enemies once more. But the plan starts to go awry when Avalon gets a little too close to Wade, and Halley starts to wonder, are they really best friends again? Or was the whole plan a ruse for Avalon to betray Halley and get to Wade? This is a fun, quick read with an ending that leaves the reader waiting for the next installation of the series. There are plenty of pop culture references and witty dialogue that will hold any reader's attention but with its somewhat shallow content, it is not suitable for any classroom lessons.

The book was filled with lying, cheating, and backstabbing. But the ending left you hanging.

When we left Halley and Avalon, they were back to being BFFs.

Now that they are best friends again, Halley and Avalon are back to confiding in each other and making awesome plans. They have taken Style Snarks and created their own web page, now that they have been disqualified from the school's web contest.

Soon, Avalon comes to Halley asking for help. The cheerleading squad wants to compete in a regional competition. The only problem is that they need twenty girls on the team - the squad currently only has ten girls. The solution is to convince the gymnastics team to merge with the cheerleaders. Avalon needs Halley to help convince the gymnasts to join the squad. Begrudgingly, Halley does, and the two groups become one. But Brianna, the captain of the squad, is floundering and unable to bring the two together.

The two girls hatch a plot to get Avalon voted as the new captain. They will act like frenemies again, with Halley undermining everything that Brianna suggests. And then, when the time is right, Halley will nominate Avalon as the new captain.

In return for Halley's help, Avalon will reroute Sofee's attention away from Wade so that Halley and Wade can get some alone time to ignite the sparks that have been flying between the two of them.

The plan starts to go so well that soon Avalon and Halley can't tell what's real and what's pretend. It seems like the two are on a collision course to becoming frenemies again.

FAKETASTIC was a much snarkier read than FRENEMIES. The two girls have such an evil friendship going, it's certainly true that you should keep your friends close, but your enemies even closer!!

Ms. Young leaves the reader hanging and wanting more, waiting for the next installment, GLAMNESIA, coming in July 2009.
