Erica has always believed herself to be the star of her sixth grade class. But then Alison Ashley shows up, and right from the start, seems to threaten Erica's position. Can these classmates ever see past their difficulties and find friendship?

why i chose it

This was one of the books we had to read in year eight English. I remember disliking the book at first, because the main character, Erica, was so annoying, but upon reflection, I realise she was just a girl who was threatened by Ashley. This book is also where I learned the word hypochondriac, so that’s something. I have a special edition copy of this book now, and I do want to read it again as an adult, rather than a 13 year old being forced to read it.
