Auditions for the new fourth-grade class play threaten to separate best friends Emma and Sandy when Emma casts a vote against Sandy based on talent rather than friendship

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-- There's principle at stake here. Emma's outspoken mother has declared that people who vote for someone they like rather than the right person for the job have "small minds." Under this influence, Emma has no choice but to vote for the snooty Marguerite for the lead in the play instead of her best friend, Sandy. Sandy finds out and it's major trauma time, sixth-grade variety. Along the way to resolution, there are other betrayals on both sides, but true friendship wins out. The girls finally get together through list-making, the same device that initially clinched their friendship. This listing ploy is not new with Singer, who has highlighted it in other books for this age with a friendship theme, such as Lizzie Silver of Sherwood Forest (Harper, 1986). Twenty Ways . . . is fast, glib, and predictable--a comfortable story for preadolescents. While it lacks the genuine feel for young friendship found in Judy Blume's Just as Long as We're Together (Orchard, 1987), it's bound to be popular. --Sally T. Margolis, formerly at The Newport Schools, Kensington, MD

From Publishers Weekly:

Told in a lively, first-person narrative, Emma's dilemma involves characters ranging from dazzling classmate Marguerite Perrier ("even her name is pretty") to the President of the U.S. ("he made me lose my best friend"). Ages 7-10.
