Being a friend is hard work. Just ask eleven-year-old Fiona Claire Jardin. Can she really be friends with a b-o-y named Eliot? And what about Katie? Should Fiona keep her friend's secret even though Katie may be in danger?

About the Author:

Robin Cruise is the author of several books for young readers, including the picture book Only You, illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Chodos-Irvine, and the novels The Top-Secret Journal of Fiona Claire Jardin and Fiona's Private Pages. She lives in the Pacific Northwest.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-In this sequel to The Top-Secret Journal of Fiona Claire Jardin (Harcourt, 1998), the 11-year-old and her younger brother, Sam, are adjusting to life in two households after their parents' divorce. The book begins on New Year's Day with Fiona, Sam, and Mom resolving to work on friendships throughout the year. However, this is just one of the many challenges the preteen faces: her favorite teacher moves away, her parents are both involved in new relationships, and her grandmother develops Alzheimer's. There's a little bit of mystery and romance, too. Personal dilemmas revolve around trying to figure out how to stay friendly with Natalie, who transfers to a private school; deciding whether wealthy Mackenzie Swanson is a friend or an enemy; and wondering if best bud, Blanca, will disown her if she doesn't go with her to Argentina this summer. Her biggest challenge, though, is deciding what to do when she discovers that a friend has anorexia. Cruise uses all these situations to create believable characters. Like Judy Blume, she tackles serious issues but provides many opportunities for laughter. A class project created by the students for their teacher gives an opportunity to weave poetry and imagination into the text. Preteen readers will love this book.
