Synopsis

The hilarious, heartwarming first installment in a friendship series from a fabulous new voice in middle-grade fiction.

Rissa Bartholomew didn't plan on declaring her independence from all of her friends at her own birthday party, one week before the start of middle school. But somehow, that's exactly what she did. Now she's entering sixth grade without a single friend, and she's determined to make new ones without simply following the herd.

Rissa's narrative is peppered with humorous musings, and the supporting characters are distinctive as well (Rissa's mother feels less useful as her daughters grow up, and Rissa's friend Beth vacillates between being spoiled and sensitive as she, too, tries to find herself).
