Sylvie Scruggs faces hockey sticks and mean-girl tricks - and still comes out on top.

Sylvie Scruggs is finally in fourth grade, and that means she's old enough to join her town's junior ice-hockey team. Sylvie is thrilled to discover her years of skating pay off, as she quickly becomes one of the best players on the squad. But someone else is still better: Jamie Redmond, a fifth-grader who notoriously doesn't like fourth-graders. And, it turns out, shereally doesn't like Sylvie.

Then someone starts pranking Sylvie at practice, loosening the top of her water bottle and replacing her special lotion with mayonnaise. Sylvie knows it must be Jamie, trying to psych her out and keep her from being selected as team captain. She enlists her friends Miranda, Josh, and Georgie to prove Jamie's guilt once and for all . . . but can they catch the mean girl before Sylvie has a meltdown of her own?

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Best Friend Battle: " Eyre's laugh-out-loud debut novel captures the discovery of the opposite sex in a fun and realistic way. Fans of Junie B. Jones will love the adventures of this heroine as they become engaged in this early chapter book." -School Library Journal " Funny and human and clever and wise. I really, really like this sparkling, racing, hilarious little gem." - Hilary McKay, author of Saffy's Angel and Binny in Secret " Two words: Sylvie Scruggs. Two more words: LOVE HER! Eyre nails it with this new kid on the block. (And here's a challenge: I dare you not to laugh out loud)." - Barbara O'Connor, author of How to Steal a Dog and The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester
