The Only Girl in School

About the Book
When Claire’s best friend, Bess, moves away, she becomes the only girl left in her entire school. At first, she thinks she’ll be able to deal with this -- after all, the girls’ bathroom is now completely hers, so she can turn it into her own private headquarters and draw on the walls. When it comes to soccer games or sailing races, she can face off against any boy.

The problem is that her other best friend, Henry, has begun to ignore her. And Webby, a super-annoying bully, won’t leave her alone. And Yucky Gilbert, the boy who has a crush on her, also won’t leave her alone.

It’s never easy being the only one -- and over the course of a wacky school year, Claire is going to have to make it through challenges big and small. The boys may think they rule the school, but when it comes to thinking on your feet, Claire’s got them outnumbered.

My Take on the Book
While I have never read this authors' works in the past I have to say that if her other works are as strong as this, I will be reading all of them. What was fun about this book, especially for my girls, was how strange of a situation that the main character was in. You see Claire is the only girl in her elementary school which is odd at the offset, but becomes fun, funny and adorable in the end. On top of this the story also has a great mystery about a cool character/legend named Smuggler Joe which makes the story even more fun for the whole family!
