My Extra Best Friend (Friends for Keep Series #5) by Julie Bowe –ADVISABLE

Bowe, Julie My Extra Best Friend (Friends for Keep Series #5) 215 pgs. Dial, 2012. $12.21.  (Rating: G)
When Ida and her two best friends get to go to camp, Ida is a bit nervous. When they get there Ida isn’t too happy to see Liz, a former best friend who had brushed Ida off. Everyone is nice to Liz, but Ida just can’t quite forgive. But that doesn’t stop Liz from trying to explain her reasons and make it up to her. Will Ida be able to forgive and take back an old friend?
I like this series, it is really fun and sweet without being overly so. The characters and dialogue feel authentic, and I think students will find it easy to relate to Ida and her friends.
