Carrie dreams about being a singer and starring in music videos. She dreams about being a kid that everybody likes, especially cool kids like Giselle and Kirsten with their cool clothes, their cool music, their saucy attitude. Tired of being called a geek, Carrie picks out new clothes, a new hairdo, and new friends, leaving her bookish pal Laura behind. But when her new friends turn on her, Carrie learns there's more to life than looking cool. Carrie's Crowd is a story about the effects of peer pressure on a girl's life, and the strength required to overcome it.

Lesley Choyce is the award-winning author of dozens of books of literary fiction, short stories, poetry, creative nonfiction and young adult novels. For more information, visit www.lesleychoyce.com.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-4-Two beginning chapter books from Canada that focus on the importance of making good decisions when dealing with friends. Lilly shuns a clumsy, accident-prone schoolmate until the two of them work together to save a kitten. A friendship develops when both girls realize that first impressions can change. Carrie has the opposite experience. Giselle, a member of the "in" crowd, befriends her. Only after Carrie samples Giselle's rudeness and lack of respect for people and property does she realize how lucky she is to have Laura, a friend she has ignored while hanging out with Giselle. Although slight, the stories involve realistic situations and will make good starting points for classroom discussions centered on interpersonal relationships. Black-and-white line drawings bring out some of the emotions described in the texts. Teachers doing units on tolerance, resiliency, and decision making will find that these titles integrate nicely.-Cheryl Cufari, Glencliff Elementary School, Niskayuna, NY
