This book is about a girl who's father is in the airfare and she is going to a new school trying to fit in. She ends up making friends with a girl, but she has to figure out if she's going to fit in with the girl's other friend. I recommend this book because a lot of young girls are trying to make friends in middle school and find their place where they belong and this book can give them a guidance.

children's middlegrade graphic fiction (1st in what I hope is a series) - Now that her recently retired Air Force dad works as a renovation contractor (a business co-owned with his best friend), they can finally stay in one place long enough for 12 y.o. Charlie Harper to make some long-term friends--and she plans to make a good impression (different clothes, different hairstyle, contact lenses) for her first day of middle school.

A funny graphic novel with appealing drawings and relatable characters, should be a hit with the kids at the library. The name of the city is not given, but it is near enough to NYC for some designer-names to show up in the thrift store, similar to Jersey City, where the author lives.

This was a book about being yourself. Friends are hard to make it at any age but when you spend your life constantly being the new kid, making friends can be hard to do. Coming into a new school three weeks after start makes it even harder. This is a sweet graphic novel about not only being a good friend but about being yourself. It’s got a great message and a fun story for any age.
