Cliques, Hicks, and Ugly Sticks: Confessions of April Grace
This book was outstanding! This book is great for young to young adult girls. This is the second book in the Confessions of April Grace series, written by KD McCrite.
In this second book, April Grace is having a tough time adjusting to sixth grade, her first year of middle school. Everyone is pushing them and calling them names. They have to watch out for the cliques that they run across, and try to understand algebra at the same time, which is not always easy to do. Plus she has to be in a church Christmas pageant run by Isabel St. James. When her grandmother gets stuck in a love triangle and her mother goes to the hospital things really start to get out of whack. Then when everything starts to settle April mother reveals what's going and April Grace and her sister Myra Sue are shocked. They had never expected that!
