From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 Set in a Catholic junior high school, this is a cousin to Judy Delton's ``Kitty'' series (Houghton)a 1980s update. Patty and Tracy, friends since nursery school, find their friendship strained by the beginning of eighth grade, when Patty finds a boyfriend and Tracy wins a lead in the school play. Patty is infuriatingly oblivious to Tracy's well-justified sense of rejection, while Tracy stubbornly persists in keeping her hurt feelings to herself. A leisurely-related series of events chronicles the uneven course of their relationship, from Patty's interception (with her nose) of a football to the publication of Patty's essay on friendship, which precipitates the confrontation that ultimately clears the air. Along the way, the point of the old round that supplies the title is made and taken: ``Make good friends, /But keep the old. /One is silver, /And the other, gold.'' This is a likable and breezy novel that doesn't take itself too seriously. Patty and Tracy are recognizable 13 year olds, their problems typical and certainly of interest to junior high readers. Undemanding fare of the sort that is always in demand. Marcia Hupp, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, Conn.
