Another fantastic Lieberson book. This time we follow Sarah, who is the daughter of a single mother. Her best friend happens to be a boy, and they have been friends for as long as she can remember. However, she at that age where she starting to have feelings, and it just so happens, she has feelings for her best friends other guy friend. Sarah must come to terms with where her friendship is with her current friend, and if she can or is willing to do anything about her crush on this other boy. As always, this book is told from two perspective, one of Sarah, and one of her best friends. It’s a mix of prose and graphic novels and like the rest of the series it just works. Kids love these novels for a reason so go check it out.… (mais)

One of the reasons that I like these books is that even though they’re a series, they can all be read independently. Each book takes place at approximately the same time and a reader can see each of the kids the important events in their lives. In this case, Brianna has been asked by her mother to be bat-mitzvah. While she’s dreading it, she’s also finding out more about herself, and why she likes her family religion. And while this book is about a bat mitzvah, it is not a religious book. It is just like the other books, a look at the life of a middle schooler, and all their thoughts and feelings. It’s a mix of graphic, novel and prose and just all together works well. I was very interested in Brianna‘s story and can’t wait to read the next one.… (mais)

Emmie wasn't the most endearing protagonist. Early in the book, she makes some jokes about kids with disabilities. It's realistic that a kid of Emmie's age and background would make those jokes, but it still rubbed me the wrong way.

This book is redeemed with an interesting ending that most young readers will not see coming. Overall, the author successfully captures the experience of a shy, insecure kid figuring out that she can be herself, make new friends, and have fun at school.
