As the school year comes to an end, Jaime knows something is going on with her friend group.  They’ve started to exclude her and make fun of the way she dresses and the things she likes. Even the best friend she’s had since kindergarten, Maya, is annoyed with her, telling Jaime she is babyish and just doesn’t fit in with the circle of popular girls any longer.  Celia, the most controlling member of the group, seems to be firmly in charge and insists that Maya sever all ties with Jaime. Can the advice of a favorite teacher help Jaime deal with this all-too-common friendship challenge or will she have to adjust to the loss of a lifetime friend?  A very realistic portrayal of tween friendship challenges that will resonate with young readers.
