Tyler has been hanging out with Emmie and the art crowd more, but his basketball friends are making fun of him. Meanwhile, Emmie, who is still crushing on Tyler, is wondering whether his friends think she is cool enough to be with him. Should she change her look and ditch her old friends? Why can’t middle school ever be easy? Book five in the Emmie & Friends series.
Ms. Krysta says: “Terri Libenson expertly captures the trials and tribulations of the middle school experience once again. Tyler loves basketball and art, but sometimes it seems like his friends and family only want him to think about sports. He will need to reflect on what he values in life, and whether he is ready to announce to everyone that he’s more than just a basketball guy. Libenson’s sense of humor, as well as her sensitivity to what it feels like to be growing up and finding one’s self, shine through in this latest installment in the Emmie & Friends series.”
