About the Author Shannon Hale is the bestselling author of many books for children, including the Ever After High series, Princess Academy (Newbery Honor book), and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl MG novel.
I think most people grow up with the struggles of making not just friends, but real friends who will stick with you no matter what. I especially love the relationship between Shannon and her sister Wendy, I really wanna know more about Wendy and how their relationship grew after the years in this book. Follow your heart. Before becoming a full-time author, Hale participated in stage and improvisational comedy, studied in Mexico and the United Kingdom, and worked as an instructional designer. I wish I had had this book in 4th-6th grade. Ok, yeah, I liked this. Why is it so much easier to have virtual friends than real friends? They live near Salt Lake City, Utah with their four small children, and their pet, a small, plastic pig.
Shannon Hale digs deep into her own experiences of making friends from elementary school to middle school, all the nitty gritty and painful trauma of bullies and peer pressure to join a “popular” friend group. One of the scary things about becoming the mother of a little girl is knowing/fearing that she is likely going to experience some mean friends in her future. Really old people. At thirteen, Jimmy was popular, at the top of his class, and the leading scorer on his basketball team. Refresh and try again.
Before Jimmy knew it, his grades were sinking and nothing seemed to be going right. Even the girl who I consider my best childhood friend to this day was incredibly cruel to me at times. Such an important read for kids and parents! Sixth grade is supposed to be perfect. Some of this felt like it was copied from my Cabbage Kid Diary, some of it made me grateful that it never happened to me. Can she stand up for herself? About ten years ago, when I was a children’s librarian in New York City, it was to be feared. An AUTObiography, see?
