    Oh the memories this brought back.

    And an aside--last week while I was working at my friend's book fair, one of the 5th grade girls kept coming in and looking at the books, especially the graphic novels. We got to talking and she had loved Invisible Emmy and Positively Emmie. I told her about Just Jaime, that it was coming out next week, and that I had ordered it. She wanted to know when the library would have it. Knowing that it was the end of school and that it would be next year before it arr

    And an aside--last week while I was working at my friend's book fair, one of the 5th grade girls kept coming in and looking at the books, especially the graphic novels. We got to talking and she had loved Invisible Emmy and Positively Emmie. I told her about Just Jaime, that it was coming out next week, and that I had ordered it. She wanted to know when the library would have it. Knowing that it was the end of school and that it would be next year before it arrived, I told her I would bring her my copy after I read it if she would share it with her friends. Anyway, Friday I will deliver it to what I know will be a very happy reader. And nothing makes me happier than sharing books and authors I love with readers. I can't wait.

    Most of this book takes place on the last day of 7th grade. Jaime and Maya have been best friends since kindergarten, but lately Jaime is feeling left out of her group of friends: Maya, Grace and Celia. Little digs at her appearance or things she likes etc.. are becoming more common. Jaime knows something is wrong, but can't figure out what it is until she gets the text from Maya saying that they had a meeting and decided that she was "out of their group."

    Most of this book takes place on the last day of 7th grade. Jaime and Maya have been best friends since kindergarten, but lately Jaime is feeling left out of her group of friends: Maya, Grace and Celia. Little digs at her appearance or things she likes etc.. are becoming more common. Jaime knows something is wrong, but can't figure out what it is until she gets the text from Maya saying that they had a meeting and decided that she was "out of their group." Maya is so desperate for Celia's approval that she agrees to "break-up" with Jaime because Celia thinks she is too babyish for them.

    This book accurately depicts the ups and downs of middle school friendships: the jealousy and cliques that form, how someone can be your best friend and then one day they are not and how some girls can be swayed by the "popular" girls and do what they say even at the expense of others. Jaime's reactions to the text from Maya and other events throughout the day seem so real and I really sympathized with her. I was happy that she was able to find other kids to hang out with, so that she was not alone. And I loved that she was also mature enough to realize that her gossiping with Maya was actually "mean girl" behavior and apologize for it.

    My daughter, who is in 7th grade read the book in one afternoon and loved it. She thought it accurately represented the drama that can take place in middle school. I thought this book was just as good as the other two books in the series, however I thought the surprise twist at the end in the other two books was better than the one in this book. Overall though, this was an excellent book and one that I highly recommend.

    I received an ARC of this book from the publisher. I was skeptical about this third installment because of my confusion and disappointment from the 2nd book in he series.

    This book didn’t disappoint. The friendship woes were on point for a middle schooler. I was impressed with Libenson’s ability to capture the feelings from both friends. The need to draw the adults back in to the story reminded me of Positively Izzy and again didn’t think it added much to the story.

    Looking forward to our middle

    Looking forward to our middle schoolers reading this one.

    A SPOT-ON look at middle school relationships between girls. While I didn't experience this EXACT thing, the general idea is SO familiar -from my life and from watching my students. I think a LOT of readers will see themselves and their friends in this story. Hopefully this will give hope to those living through friend drama.

    Ok I just read this on my lunch break standing at the sale table at Coles and it was actually really really good!! You know those books that just vividly & accurately capture a specific period in your childhood? This was that. (Also, the queen bee popular girl of this one was called Celia, an excellent name for an evil bitch villainess.)
