Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Poydar's suburban scenes enhance the amiable atmosphere of this engaging and sensitive look at friendship." Kirkus Reviews
Children's Literature - Michelle H. Martin
Jane-Marie and Carolyn have been friends since preschool. They share everything: celery sticks with peanut butter, jokes, advice on improving cartwheels, and even secrets. One day, however, Carolyn tells Jane-Marie a secret that she fails to keep. The misunderstanding leads to a month-long demise of their friendship. In the end, however, both girls make new friends and gain a greater appreciation for one another. Poydar's attractive watercolor illustrations in this early chapter book will appeal to most readers. The author has also created a realistic conflict between two girls: their month-long stand-off results from a simple misunderstanding that could have been resolved in a brief conversation. This emphasizes the importance of communication with friends and of not making hasty assumptions. While Carolyn's brother, with his "girls are dumb" mentality, is a stereotypical male character, many readers will appreciate Carolyn's love of Math and her involvement in both ballet and softball. Valuable for its complex characters and its realistic depiction of a common conflict between elementary school friends, this book will ring true for many readers.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-Third-grader Carolyn is angry when she finds out that her best friend has revealed her secret: that she wants Katie Kempo, the most popular girl in the class, to like her. After confronting Jane-Marie, Carolyn seeks out new people to sit with at lunch or to play with after school. But still she misses Jane-Marie. By the time Carolyn accepts her apology, it looks as if each girl will bring along a new pal to create a foursome. A lot goes on in just four, 10-page chapters-everything from betrayal to reconciliation. Willner-Pardo's realistic portrayal of the rewards and problems inherent in having one best friend is ably assisted by Poydar's watercolor illustrations, one on almost every double-page spread, which show contemporary, jeans-clad children going through the school day. This approachable book has less text than Janice Lee Smith's ``Adam Joshua'' series (HarperCollins), but is aimed at the same audience. A perfect choice for readers who want a little more story but not so many words.-Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
Hazel Rochman
nger for reading aloud. The jealousy and misunderstanding among girlfriends as well as their joyful bonding are dramatized in this easy chapter book. Carolyn shares school lunches, special jokes, and private nicknames with her best friend, Jane-Marie, and they have a lot of fun together at school and at home; but when Jane-Marie gives away a secret, Carolyn can't forgive the betrayal. The immediate first-person narrative gets across the hesitancies and hostilities of the female social scene; in one funny chapter, a boy just can't understand what Carolyn's getting so het up about. Bright watercolor-and-colored-pencil illustrations on almost every page show the hurt, the fun, and the uncertainty as Carolyn tries to get the hang of this friendship thing.
