From the New York Times best­selling au­thor, of “Are You There God? It’s Me, Mar­garet,” and the adult best­seller, “In the Un­likely Event,” comes a tale of fam­ily, friend­ship, and pre­teen life like only JUDY BLUME can de­liver. The com­pan­ion to, “Here’s To You,” by Rachel Robin­son. Can you have more than one best friend? Stephanie’s best friend is Rachel. Since sec­ond grade they’ve shared ev­ery­thing, good and bad. But now it’s the start of sev­enth grade and Ali­son has just moved to their neigh­bor­hood. Stephanie im­me­di­ately clicks with her—she’s cool and fun and to­tally hum­ble, even though she’s the daugh­ter of a fa­mous ac­tress. Stephanie hopes all three of them can be best friends, but the more she pushes Ali­son on Rachel, the more Rachel seems to drift away. Is it pos­si­ble to have two best friends? Or is it true that two’s com­pany, three’s a crowd? “Judy Blume does it again in what may be her best book yet!” – Amer­i­can Book­seller­com­ing-of-age novel—a heartwrench­ing story about how dif­fi­cult it is to play the part that peo­ple ex­pect, and how new be­gin­nings can stem from abrupt and tragic end­ings.
