Life has been predictable for Evie, and she doesn’t expect seventh grade to offer many surprises for herself or her longtime best friends, Lily and Nisha. Then Francesca moves next-door to live with her aunt, and suddenly nothing’s the same. A free spirit, Francesca has an elastic relationship with the truth and doesn’t mind getting involved in matters that are none of her business—as when she tries to engineer a romantic relationship between two teachers, one of whom, as it turns out, is married. Evie is alternately intrigued and infuriated by Francesca’s behavior, but there’s no doubt that Francesca offers a decidedly different take on life. Dee neatly captures the interactions of middle-schoolers and in Francesca provides a character, who, while larger-than-life, still fits well into the seventh-grade milieu. A quick, fun read. - BOOKLIST, Online Exclusive, November 7, 2010
