Sylvie Scruggs doesn't like Georgie Diaz. He always calls her Scruggs. He always beats her in baseball. He didn't invite her to his party. Plus, he's a boy.

Now Georgie is trying to steal Sylvie's best friend, Miranda Tan. He's giving Miranda a super-special birthday present, so Sylvie will too -- only her present will be ten times better. With the help of her twin brothers, a ferret, a castle, and some glitter glue, Sylvie sets out to make Miranda remember who her REAL best friend is, and forget about Georgie forever.

"Two words: Sylvie Scruggs. Two more words: LOVE HER! Eyre nails it with this new kid on the block. (And here's a challenge: I dare you not to laugh out loud)." -- Barbara O'Connor, author of How To Steal A Dog and The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—There are so many reasons why Sylvie Scruggs doesn't like Georgie Diaz. He didn't invite her to his "welcome-Georgie-to-the neighborhood party," he makes fun of the way she pitches, and, worst of all, he's a boy. Now, Sylvie finds out that while she was away on her family's annual two-week vacation, Georgie stole her best friend, Miranda, right out from under her. Miranda and Sylvie have been best friends since they were babies. They had everything in common, and now Georgie is trying to come between them. Sylvie has to do something to keep Georgie from taking her place in Miranda's life. But will her plan work before Miranda's big birthday party? Eyre's laugh-out-loud debut novel captures the discovery of the opposite sex in a fun and realistic way, while Santoso's black-and-white artwork brings the personalities of the characters to life. Fans of Junie B. Jones will love the adventures of this heroine as they become engaged in this early chapter book.—Annette Herbert, F. E. Smith Elementary School, Cortland, NY
