About this title


Jessica and Sheila have been best friends since kindergarten, but on the first day of 7th grade, Sheila dumps Jessica and becomes part of a new clique who humiliates Jessica. If junior high is supposed to be so great, why is Jessica miserable? A Booklist Editor's Choice.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 - 8-- When feisty 12-year-old Jessica enters junior high school, she realizes that life is not always easy. Her former best friend, Sheila, and five other girls have created a clique and will not even acknowledge her existence. With an iron will, Jessica forces herself to act nonchalantly even when the group leader ridicules her, saying that her new dress looks like a Wonder Bread explosion. The nickname "Wonder" sticks, and Jessica's worst nightmares coming true--eating lunch alone, no friends, and exclusion from the boy-girl parties. And then, Conor O'Malley sails full force into her life, making her reassess the things in life worth fighting for. Jessica's first-person account reveals a three-dimensional character with whom readers will laugh and empathize. Her wit and sarcasm shine through her rambling confessions; even at her worst, one realizes that Jessica is a true survivor. Skillful writing replete with humor portrays the minor characters as strong foils to Jessica; someone as bold and confident as popular Tracy has her weak moments and does not always have the solution. The underlying message rings loud and clear--only when one realizes that everyday is a new challenge that has to be faced with laughter, backbone, and determination can he or she perservere. Readers who have grown up with Paula Danziger's and Ellen Conford's heroines will revel in the rollicking escapades of Jessica.
