Publisher Comments:

Yikes! As if being the new girl isn't bad enough, Charlotte just made the biggest cafeteria blunder in the history of Abigail Adams Junior High. There's no way that Katani, Avery, and Maeve will want anything to do with her now. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Can a mysterious landlady, a romantic evening gone wrong, and a cryptic key to nowhere help four very different girls become the best of friends? Or will they remain worst enemies forever?

About the Author

The Beacon Street Girls books are inspired by all the preteen girls I've ever known. I wanted to create a world where girls can go to have fun and learn about who they are, while modeling real-life experiences. The first book, Worst Enemies/Best Friends, explores creating and testing friendships, skewed first impressions, and being the new kid at school. In the end, true friendship conquers all. Welcome to the world of the BSG!

“Beacon Street Girls” by Anne Bryant is a series of books aimed toward tween/teenage girls. The first book in the series is “Worst Enemies/Best Friends.” The premise of the story is that Charlotte, who is a tween, has moved a lot due to her father being a writer. When they move again, he asks Charlotte where she wants to go and she says that she wants to go to Brookline, Massachusetts where she was born and lived for the first four years of her life. Charlotte’s mother died when she was four.

Being a new girl is hard and starting junior high is hard, so Charlotte had a lot to be worried about when she starts at Abigail Adams Junior High. It is through her experiences here that she learns that first impressions are not always correct. We follow Charlotte as she navigates being the new girl, finding out that not everyone is as she thinks they are, that families are made up differently (some have no mother, others are adopted, etc.) , that having a crush on a boy can cause problems between friends and more. We don’t just see things through Charlotte’s eyes, though. We also have narration from the other girls in the book that become Charlotte’s friends.

I would highly recommend this book to tween/teenage girls. The characters are all plausible and the situations that arise are common enough that any teenage girl can relate to something in the story. This is a series that parents don’t’ have to worry about anything being inappropriate in it such as language or sexual situations.
