Lara wants to make sure everyone has a best friend. It doesn't matter that she doesn't, because it's understood that she is far to busy helping others to have time for that herself. But when a new girl (who is disturbingly uncaring about others' perceptions of her) challenges Lara to see who can make a better friendship match comes to town, things get hairy for Lara. Abdel-Fattah does a nice job of setting up a main character and her mission, even dispensing bits of the yet to be published Manual of making and keeping friends throughout the novel. The characters and language are authentic to a middle schoolers. While the focus here is on middle school friendship, it is refreshing that the focus is not popularity.
