Synopses & Reviews
"Emma doesn’t mind being weird," Cynthia says."You should see her bedroom."
My bedroom. I can’t believe what I am hearing.
"It’s all covered with nature posters,"Cynthia adds."It’s just like being in a boy’s room!"
Why is Cynthia calling Emma weird? They are supposed to be friends!
Well, two can play at that game. In Emma’s opinion, Cynthia is kind of a bossy pants. Before long, Emma’s entire third grade class is swapping outrageous nicknames like Jar-head, Shrimpy, and even Porky. While it’s funny at first, Emma begins to see how much name calling can hurt. But before Emma can call for a truce, her teacher beats her to it and makes the most dreaded call of all—the one to everyone’s parents!
Fresh and funny, with a side of wisdom, this second book about eight year-old Emma is sure to entertain many young readers.
Eight-year-old EllRay is down to one-and-a-half best friends, which leads his little sister to point out the obvious: he needs new friends. A spare, at least. For emergencies. So EllRay decides to audition other boys for the role of Spare Best Friend.
