Our Friendship Rules
*Moonbeam GOLD Award*
Dazzled by the glamour of a new girl at school, Alexandra is willing to do anything to get to be her friend?including betray the secrets of her best friend, Jenny. When she realizes what she’s done, can Alexandra make things right?
Kids are under a lot of pressure to fit in. Sometimes bowing to this pressure forces them to betray their own ideas of what is right and wrong.
Momentarily dazzled by the glamor of a new girl at school, Alexandra tattles her best friend Jenny's biggest, most important secret in order to win a place within the cool crowd. When she sees how she's hurt Jenny's feelings, she wonders how she'll regain the relationship she values far more than being invited to sit with the popular girls.
OUR FRIENDSHIP RULES is both a lyrical story of forgiveness and a guidebook on relationships. Author Peggy Moss employs her training as a mediator and communication expert to provide a simple, sweet but instructive tale of how to get along.
The evocative collage-paintings of Alissa Imre Geis further illustrate the many layers of personality. Her Alexandra will amaze you with her artistic eye, and her Jenny will make you smile with her practical sensibility as you see these best friends reconnect with the help of their friendship rules.
