Another spot-on story of middle school drama and friendship from Terri Libenson, national bestselling author of graphic novel favorites Invisible Emmie and Positively Izzy.
Friends. Frenemies. Middle school...
The last day of seventh grade has Jaime and Maya wondering who their real friends are.
Jaime knows something is off with her friend group. They've started to exclude her and make fun of the way she dresses and the things she likes. At least she can count on her BFF, Maya, to have her back . . . right?
Maya feels more and more annoyed with Jaime, who seems babyish compared to the other girls in their popular group. It's like she has nothing in common with Jai anymore. Are their days as BFFs numbered . . . ?
Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Jennifer L. Holm.

About the Author
As a Type A perfectionist, Terri Libenson hates to admit that she has any ex-friends. But as a mom (and former middle school student in the dark ages), she knows these things happen. She also knows how wonderful it is when friendships do work out. Terri is the New York Times bestselling author of the Emmie & Friends series and the cartoonist of the award-winning syndicated comic strip The Pajama Diaries (2006-2020). Terri has a husband, two daughters, and one poodle (all adorable). She lives in Cleveland, Ohio.
"A delightful tale that navigates the precarious ebb and flow of friendship dynamics." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"This story is simultaneously incredibly original and utterly universal. The emotional roller-coaster of navigating friendships as they change shape, particularly in middle school, is portrayed with admirable sincerity, gentle humor, heartbreaking pain, and of course plenty of texts and emojis. Libenson weaves a beautiful, accessible, layered story yet again." -- ALA Booklist
"Libenson perfectly portrays the gaslighting and passive aggression that can be the hallmarks of middle-school relationships turned sour, and readers struggling with cracking of beloved friendships will find reassurance in the book's 'this too shall pass' sentiment." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
