Overview

Tween readers will love following the adventures of Mackenzie “Zee” Blue. California girl Zee is an expert shopper, plays the guitar and writes songs, and makes purses and jewelry. She knows how it feels to have a huge crush. And she knows how to be a good friend and keeps in touch via texts and emails.
 
In Friends Forever?, third in Tina Wells’s delightful illustrated middle-grade series, Zee and the rest of her class from the Brookdale Academy are off on a camping trip to compete in an environmental scavenger hunt. Zee is extra psyched because her best friend, Ally, is visiting from Paris. It should be fabulous having all her friends in one place, but for some reason everyone is fighting!

Editorial Reviews

ALA Booklist
“A lighthearted series, sure to please girls all too aware of the impending approach of middle school.”
Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
As Mackenzie Blue gets ready to head out for a seven-day school camping trip, she is excited to be with her four best friends. However, throughout her stay, she has to deal with a number of different problems. First, she has to face Landon, on whom she has a huge crush. She also has to learn how to spend time with all of her best friends, even when they start to dislike each other. On top of that, she gets her first period, lives in fear of the supposed Mountain Man who lives in the mountains, and tries to prepare for the talent show at the end of the week. In the end, it all turns out okay, and she even gets her first kiss, a revived relationship with her best friends, and performs a great routine at the talent show. The story is very entertaining, but should probably be limited more to the older tween ages. I feel that the "getting her period" storyline would be too much for eight-year-olds. The book is very well developed and actually manages to create some suspense. At the end, you are left with a few questions lingering, which are sure to be further developed as the "Mackenzie Blue" series of books continues. Even I found myself wondering what would happen in relation to some foreshadowing in this book. The illustrations throughout the book are cute and help to give a visual of how characters look. Although not a "deep" classic novel, it is a lot of fun for the intended audience and uses current pop culture references and common tween problems. Reviewer: Melissa Rife

My daughter has been reading this series and she really enjoys it. When I asked for her review she feft it was best for girls maybe 11-12 because of some of the topics in the story.

I was disappointed that on the back of this book it was noted by Harper that it was for ages 8-12 because I don't think that the material in this book is age appropriate. When my eight year old came to me with questions about getting her period, I was taken off guard. There is a chapter in the book about the main character getting her first period. I would have preferred for my daughter to learn about this from me, rather than a book. I think 8 is a bit early for this. I am disappointed in Harper.
