Not Fair, ClareBook - 2008
Life is good for Clare. Those, um, womanly curves she's been waiting for have begun to arrive. She's got a new dog. And she's finally said goodbye to Elsa, her imaginary friend since she was five. But just when you thought she had it all figured out ... Enter eighth grade. At first, it's not so bad--she's got a new best friend, Allison. She's still a boyfriendless social outcast, but hey, Allison is in the same boat ... until Ginny Germaine, the school's prettiest, most popular girl, decides she wants Allison all for herself. And sort of like Lady Macbeth, Ginny always gets what she wants.Who can Clare turn to? The eager new drama teacher? No. Way. How about that weird little kid next door? Definitely not. Elsa? But she's gone ... right? Middle-grade and 'tween readers, teachers and librarians will love Yvonne Prinz's cynical, witty heroine and Terry Wong's sparkling cover illustrations. Book three in this smart and exuberant series is Double-Dare Clare.Ages 10-13
