A heartwarming story from the author of the I SURVIVED series.

Emma-Jean Lazarus is the smartest and strangest girl at William Gladstone Middle School. Her classmates don't understand her, but that's okay because Emma-Jean doesn't quite get them either. But one afternoon, all that changes when she sees Colleen Pomerantz crying in the girl's room. It is through Colleen that Emma-Jean gets a glimpse into what it is really like to be a seventh grader. And what she finds will send her tumbling out of a tree and questioning why she ever got involved in the first place.

Lauren Tarshis lives in Westport, Connecticut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emma-Jean Lazarus This was a very intriguing book that I hope many other people will read during their free time. There was much drama and mystery. I couldn't keep my mind of of it. In my opinion I thought that there were many lessons to this story. Lessons about who you are inside, lessons about minding your own business, and lessons about opening up and letting people in.
