Title: Sophie’s Friendship Fiasco
Author: Nancy Rue
Short Summary: Sophie Lacroix and her friends go to Junior High as 7th graders. They made a code not to be mean to anyone. But Sophie breaks that promise herself by pretending to join a group of mean girls! They nicknamed the mean girls “the Cornpops”.
What I liked about the story: This is a very adventurous story as Sophie thinks she lost her real friends – all of them.
What I liked about the writing: Sophie’s BFF Fiona uses large words that we don’t normally use.
