Audrey is fascinated by the new girl at school, Mailee. But she isn't sure how to get to know her -- Mailee is nice to everyone, but Audrey can't tell if she wants to be friends.Audrey has been friends with Carmen since like forever but when a new girl arrives at school, Audrey goes out of her way to try to become friends with the new girl as far as making a "slam book" because she just has to know what the new girl thinks about her!
I really wanted to smack Audrey upside her head! You don't diss a friend like she did just to make a new friend. Besides what kind of example does that show the potential new friend that if another new person comes along you may do them the same way? Friends are fairly easy to find but a bestest friend is somebody you need to hang onto as Audrey finally learns!
