Big Kids-Juvenile Fiction
Kids are under a lot of pressure to fit in. Sometimes bowing to this pressure forces them to betray their own ideas of what is right and wrong.
Alexandra and Jenny have been best friends for a long time, but when Alexandra is dazzled by a glamorous new girl at school, she’s willing to do almost anything to be the cool girl’s friend, including first shunning Jenny and then revealing Jenny’s biggest, most important secret. Seeing the hurt she has caused and realizing how bad it feels to lose her best friend, Alexandra then seeks a way to regain the relationship that means far more to her than being invited to sit with the popular girls. Ultimately, she and Jenny write down the rules that will cement their friendship forever.
