A Book to Luv Bunches
In the first week of fifth grade, it's going to take a lost (stolen?) turtle toy, a home-grown social website, a sleight of hand with Hershey's syrup, and the courage of true friends to finally set Camilla free.
Maybe you heard about this as "that book about the girl with two moms, that Scholastic refused to carry in their school book fairs a few years ago." Well, having read it, I can definitely say that was a whole lot of kerfuffle about nothing. One character just happens to have two moms, that's all.
Girls of all ages will see themselves in at least one and probably more of this floral quartet, and hopefully appreciate the reminder of the difference between "frenemies" and real friends. Don't miss the two sequels for more adventures.
