Overview

Best friends Julie and Lydia are back in this hilarious sequel to Amy Ignatow's breakout novel!


After spending all of fifth grade studying popularity together, Julie and Lydia are finally ready to put their hard-earned lessons to use in junior high. But before they can, tragedy strikes: Lydia's mom gets a job in London for six whole months! Before Lydia can say "fancy a cup of tea?" she's thrust into a new school, where she earns a reputation as "the Violent American." Meanwhile Julie's stuck navigating the cliques of American junior high on her own, where she is adopted by a group of troublemaking eighth graders known as the Bichons. The two best friends will have to learn to keep in touch and stand on their own, assisted as always by their trusty notebook. Amy Ignatow's signature sense of humor is on full display in this satisfying sequel.

Lydia's mom has gotten a great job opportunity and will be going off to England with her two daughters, much to their dislike. One of the good things is that it will only be for six months, but that's still six months of middle school away from her best friend, Julie. While in England, Lydia forms a group of friends consisting of some of the kids on the outer fringe of popularity. As for Julie, she makes her way into one of the most popular cliques at school known as the Bichons. Using some of what they observed in the first book, both girls try and become a bit more popular - and still learn as much as they can - in their respective corners of the world. I personally love anything that deals with England, so it was really fun to see Lydia's adventures there and the new words she learned. Lydia's particular crisis in this book is that she must learn to accept people as they are and sure, encourage your friends, but don't force them to do things. She also must deal with her mom possibly falling for a guy, and where does that leave her? Stuck in England? Julie, on the other hand, is doing pretty well for herself - or so you think. She soon realizes that the Bichons aren't that great of people, and she'll have to figure out just who her real friends are and how to stand up for herself. These are all pretty universal issues, and some of them can take place at even an older age, which goes with the idea that these aren't just for the middle grade crowd. I like that the girls are a bit clueless with things. I don't think they are too "dumb" or anything, just a bit naive. They are kind of dorky girls who really only had each other for awhile, and here they are in middle school with kids from various elementary schools and they have to survive. Well, at least Julie does. Lydia has to make do with everything being new. I loved that Ms. Ignatow plays with Lydia and Julie's friendship in various ways. They aren't always happy with each other - they argue, they write things about each other (for only their eyes), and they stop talking sometimes. It's a normal friendship that grows and changes. As for Julie's dads, you see them just as much in this installment as the previous one, and they are just as adorable! I think the author does a great job showcasing various parents and siblings (such as Lydia's sister, Melody). They are all very unique and their own people - but it works somehow, just like with most families!

Its about bulling and middle school. Also about two friends being split. One to England . Funny, how to survive in middle school and friendship. Totally worth it:)

Good series! Personally, there is not really a lot of excitement in this book. I still like this book, but I'm just saying that I recommend Book #1 of this series over the second book.
