"Hurray for strong girl characters!"*Author Elisa Carbone bursts onto the middle-grade scene with a laugh-out-loud story of a girl who tackles life head-on. Ten-year-old Sarah definitely has an attitude. But who can blame her? Her family dragged her along on their move from Maine to Maryland, she's left her best friend behind, and the first kid her age she meets calls her a "sick-o." What did she do? All Sarah really wants is to make a good friend. But just as it looks as if she might find one in fast-talking, soccer-playing Christina Perez, Sarah's newfound enemy launches a crusade to make her life miserable. And Sarah can't stop herself from getting revenge--even though it threatens her new friendship.Lots of laughs and spunky characters abound in this totally entertaining middle-grade novel, reminiscent in style to those of Barbara Park and Judy Blume. Sarah's witty observations and trouble making antics make for fun reading, and readers--even reluctant ones--will cheer as she finds an inventive solution to her "enemy" problem."Sarah is exactly the kind of kid who will have readers (both girls and boys) rallying behind her as she tries to tackle a multitude of problems brought on by a family move. I loved her 'never say die' attitude!" --*Barbara Park, author of Mick Harte Was Here"Fast-paced and funny--and much, much more! Meet Sarah--up to her ears in trouble. Will you clap for her at the end of this lively book? You bet you will!" --Barbara Robinson, author of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever
