“Meet Nikki and Deja, who live next door to each other and are best friends. They do everything together watch Saturday morning cartoons, play jacks, jump double Dutch at recess, and help each other with their homework for Mrs. Shelby’s third-grade class. But when an arrogant new girl arrives and Nikki and Deja form a club that would exclude her, the results are not what they expect. This warm, easy-to-read chapter book from an award-winning author captures all the joys and complexities of elementary school life particularly friendships and cliques with finesse and humor.”
**THIS IS MY DAUGHTER’S REVIEW (9 years old)**
This book is about two best friends that have an argument, but in the end, they work it out.
What I Liked
-I liked that it was about best friends (I have a best friend named Deja too!).
– I liked how the characters acted in the story.
– I like that this book had a few pictures to go along with the story. Not too many, but just right.
What I Didn’t Like
-There isn’t anything that I didn’t like about this book.
What I Wanted More Of
– I wanted more main characters – more people involved in the actual action of the story.
I gave this book 4 stars because I felt that it was a very good book that can actually describe somebody’s life with a best friend. I can’t wait to read the next one!
