Middle school is tough enough as part of a close-knit clique. But when your best friend texts you that you’ve been voted out? That’s world-shattering. It’s the last day of seventh grade, and Jaime is alone — or is she? Maybe she has more friends than she thinks — friends who don’t need her to be anything but Jaime. Recommended By Madeline S., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
Award-winning cartoonist and national bestselling author Terri Libenson delivers a third brilliant full-color hybrid graphic novel about friendship and middle school set in the same world as Invisible Emmie and Positively Izzy, featuring two dynamic new characters, Jaime and Maya.
The last day of seventh grade has Jaime and Maya wondering who their real friends are.
Jaime knows something is off with her friend group. They’ve started to exclude her and make fun of the way she dresses and the things she likes. At least she can count on her BFF Maya to have her back…right?
Maya feels more and more annoyed with Jaime, who seems babyish compared to the other girls in their popular group. It’s like she has nothing in common with Jay anymore. Are their days as BFF numbered…?
This is another spot-on story of middle school drama and friendship from national bestseller Terri Libenson.
