Grade 3-6 - In this fourth installment in the series, fifth grader and avid diary writer Melanie Martin copes with problems at home in New York City. She thought that she and Cecily would be BFF, or Best Friends Forever, but now a new girl has moved in and seemingly wants to steal Cecily away. To complicate things, boys are starting to enter the picture. Melanie is having an online romance with Miguel, whom she met in Spain, but her classmate Justin has caught her eye as well. Things really start to get messy when Miguel announces he and his uncle are coming to New York to visit Melanie and her family. The protagonist struggles to balance her friendship with Cecily and to tolerate Suze, juggle her romances with Miguel and Justin, and act as a Manhattan tour guide. The diary format is appealing and Weston does an effective job of conveying typical preteen conflicts and concerns. Fans of the earlier books will appreciate this one. - Heather Ulesoo, New York Public Library

From the Inside Flap
For once, Mel is spending her vacation on her home turf—Manhattan! But she's not alone. Miguel, the cute boy she met in Spain, is visiting New York, and this time Mel gets to be his tour guide. From the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty, from the Central Park Zoo to the Brooklyn Bridge, Mel and Miguel are off on their own adventures. But—uh-oh!—
Mel also meets a boy in math class. And while she is learning lots about the Big Apple, she is also learning it's harder than you think to like two guys at one time.
