Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

These two little volumes are the latest entries in a distinctive series in Christian publishing. Rue-author of many "Faithgirlz!" books-writes in an accessible, from-the-hip style in an effort to reach the important but elusive "tween" female market. She offers Christian-inflected advice on puberty, personal hygiene, friendship, and girl-on-girl bullying. Whether 13-year-olds will respond, this reviewer is not qualified to say, but Rue's approach has its charm, and her advice is sound. Librarians will want to watch this series as an example of the expanding purview of Christian publishing. For most collections, especially those with a large YA population.

Chapter One

What's a Girl Thing ... AND WHAT'S NOT?

Emily Ellen Edwards was having a very strange day.

It started to get weird when she slipped into her usual seat on the school bus. Her best friend Lara Lillo was there, of course. But this morning she barely gave Emily a glance before she zipped her eyes back to someone in the seat in front of them.

It was Katy Cuthbert - the girl who practically kept the price tags on her clothes so everyone would know how expensive they were. She even had her nails done - in the fifth grade - hello-o! Emily and Lara and the rest of their friends didn't talk to her that much because obviously Katy thought she was way better than they were.

But there she was, hands cupped around Lara's ear, whispering into it. Whispering. Like a best friend.

When Katy turned to another Price Tag Girl who slipped in beside her at the next stop, Emily caught Lara by the sleeve and hissed into her other ear.

"What's going on?"

"Huh?"

"What was Katy Cutthroat talking to you about?"

"Nothing," Lara said.

Emily lowered herchin. "Hello-o! She was flapping her lips, like, nine hundred miles an hour. She must have been saying something."

Lara rolled her eyes. "Something about herself-of course."

Okay. That was better.

When they got to school and everyone was in their seats, Emily wrote Lara a note.

I'm glad you're my best friend.

Lara wrote back, Totally.

Then why, when it was time to pick their groups for the social studies project, did Lara let Katy drag her into the circle she'd made with the other girls who had French manicures?

"Come on, Em," Lara said over her shoulder.

Emily followed, feeling like a pitiful puppy.

Katy patted the chair beside her for Lara to sit in. That left no place for Emily. Katy gave Emily a smile like the plastic lips on Mr. Potato Head.

"Looks like you'll have to find a different group," Katy said.

"I could pull up another chair," Emily said.

"We have enough people," Katy said.

Emily looked quickly at Lara, but she was staring down at her cuticles. Her cheeks were the color of cranberries.

"La-ra," Emily said between tightened teeth.

"Sorry," Lara said. She didn't even look up.

Emily stumbled over to her two almost-best friends, who had obviously witnessed the entire scene. They pulled a chair in close to theirs and tugged Emily into it. Kimberly's eyes were blazing. Mary Elizabeth's were shooting glares at Lara like little gun barrels.

"I can't believe Lara did that to you!" Kimberly said in a whisper.

"To us," Mary Elizabeth said, not in a whisper.

Kimberly leaned toward Emily. "Don't even worry about it, Em. We'll have our own group."

"And not just for this project." Mary Elizabeth shot a few more eye bullets at Lara. "For real. Like, all the time."

"Just wait 'til she tries to sit with us at lunch," Kimberly said. "Then she'll see how it feels."

Mary Elizabeth nodded. "That's what she gets for ditching us. Right, Em?"

"Sure," Emily said in a tiny voice. But she wanted to shout, Lara! What just happened? We're best friends!

Her mind spun. This was really strange. It was absolutely weird.

And it hurt like nothing else.

now what?

If you are a girl between the ages of eight and twelve, you have probably faced something like what Emily is going through. Or maybe your situation has been more like Lara's, or Kimberly and Mary Elizabeth's, or even Katy's. If none of those kinds of things have happened to you, they just might. That's because you're still learning about friendship, which, though fun, can get pretty complicated. This book is here to help you

* know what real friendship is like, * fix the mistakes everyone makes from time to time in relationships, * avoid the major bummers like cliques and bullying, and * help make your girl community a safe place for every girl to be her true self.

Let's get back to poor Emily. What do you think she should do about Lara, about Mary Elizabeth and Kimberly, and about Katy and the Price Tag Girls? Decide what you would say to her if you were there with her and write it in the space below. There are no right or wrong answers, so be honest. If, as you read the rest of this book, you discover something that makes you change your mind about how to encourage Emily, you'll have a chance to "talk" to her again in the last chapter.

Here's the Deal

Can you imagine what it would be like not to have at least one girlfriend? Think about it. What would you do

* at lunchtime?

* at recess?

* when something freaky happened to you?

* when something cool happened to you?

* when you were bored?

* when your feelings were hurt?

Even worse, how would you feel? (Hopefully you don't feel that way right now, but if you do, this book can really help. Read with hope.)

Circle any of these words that describe what it would be like to be girlfriend-less. Add your own if you think of some.

    Girl Politics

    This is a great book for girls who have friendship issues or want to be prepared for friendship issues. I liked how there were little quizzzes and things to fill out along with the story to really illustrate the problem and how to solve it.

    Bought 10 copies to give away

    Really, I did buy 10 copies and gave them away to fifth and sixth grade girls. The tween-friendly format of story combined with worksheets (you know, the check the box that's most like you things), and d-i-y projects really appealed to the group of girls I was working with. The situations given are real to life. It has prompted a lot of discussion.

    The Best Book For You And Your Friends

    Hi Everyone. This is Grandmotherof2 Grandaughter. This book is awesome. You can never judge a book by it's cover. I just love this book. I never ever wanted to throw this book away. I thought that this book is really awful. But it is really great. I love how it gives tips for bullying and for friendship. So if you and your friend arne't talking you guys can meet up YOU DON'T HAVE TO TALK TO EACH OTHER. Just simply do the activties and reconize you two are missing out on.
