Casey Valentine can't wait for the new school year to begin. She's sure she will be elected president for the second year in a row. And the best news is that her good friend Tracy Matson is moving to Casey's town. They'll be in fifth grade together!
But the election doesn't turn out as Casey had planned. What's worse is that Tracy is stealing Casey's friends and embarrassing her by telling everyone about the dumb things Casey did when she visited Tracy in High Flats during the summer. Casey begins to wish Tracy had never moved to town. Can this friendship be saved?

"The feeling and understanding of childhood jealousies and fears are well-conveyed." --School Library JournalFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6Pen-pal Tracy comes to town to stay and shatters best friend Casey's fifth-grade year by being elected class president. These are the same friends from Fourth-Grade Celebrity and The Girl Who Knew It All (both Delacorte, 1979), among others. The kids are as genuine as always, although not as de lightfully humorous as in the earlier books. The feeling and understanding of childhood jealousies and fears are well conveyed. Casey's other friend, Walter, has his own problems when a new baby sister arrives. Both Casey and Walter learn about accepting change, sharing, and teamwork. Mor rill's shaded pencil illustrations reflect the characters' emotions. Readers fa miliar with the series will want to follow the girls' antics as they fight and make- up, although this book does stand alone.Susan McCord, Boise Public Library, Idaho
