Just Jaime (Emmie and Friends) by Terri Libenson

Once you’re in middle school. issues of friendship are at the forefront.  Books to the rescue, since you can read about other characters and their middle school dilemmas and try out different solutions, empathize with characters, and discuss with your own friends.  It only works, of course, if the stories you read are true-to-life, interesting, humorous–and it doesn’t hurt if they are graphic novels.  Terri Libenson has become one of our go-to middle school authors. (see our reviews:  Invisible Emmie, Positively Emmie).  Her latest–Just Jaime–is equally compelling; here, we share Jaime’s ups, and of course downs, with her long-time best friend Maya.  If you know middle schoolers who are looking for an engrossing read, you’ll know what to recommend!
