I recommend I Should Worry, I Should Care because it's a really great book about a little girl moving into a new neighborhood and doesn't like it then tries to make friends and ends up loving her new neighborhood. I really liked theis book because it was very interesting seeing what kinds of friends Molly would make. It was nice at the end when she ended up loving her new neighborhood. I think you should read it because it is very interesting seeing how Molly makes it in her new neighborhood.
