Great book! But parts of it were less interesting- like the story that she made up throughout the book. But still a great story

is real friends the same book as making friends?

Hale tackles the tricky minefields of friendship once more as Sharon enters the 6th grade and deals with friends moving away, sleepovers, gossip, boys, and creating your own schedule.

LOVE this book

A great sequel to Shannon Hale's 1st graphic memoir, "Real Friends". In this volume, Shannon is still navigating the ups and downs of middle school along with trying to understand the rules of friendships. For fans of Raina Telgemeier, Terrib Libenson & Victoria Jamieson.

This was just as good as "Real Friends", the graphic novel that preceded it. It's such an insightful look at the middle school years, and despite being about the author's own childhood in the 80s, it feels relevant to kids today. LeUyen Pham's art continues to be a perfect match for Shannon Hale's writing, and I finished this hoping they have more collaborations to come.
