Fortunately, Clarice's "utterly best friend" Betty Moody shares her fascination with all things Ruby Redfort. Unfortunately, her ubf moves away, leaving her alone with her worries and her tickets for the movie premiere of Run, Ruby, Run, in which she has a small part. Even worse, a new (Swedish) girl arrives at the school, soaking up the attentions of her classmates. With Betty (mostly) incommunicado, Clarice slips into despair, and misinterprets the actions of others, thus piling on additional worries. But when all seems lost, she stumbles upon the clues to a kidnapping, uses what she's learned from RR to help solve the crime, and makes a new friend. The hardcopy version of this book, with its colorful cover and built-in bookmark, would be a great choice for any third to fifth grade worrier, with its refreshingly original variety of fonts, sketches, and predictably-positive-ending story. Also good: The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron, The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg, and The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.
Clarice lives in London, is wonderfully mischievious, and absolutely hysterical. She isn't snottly like Junie B., but certainly does have her share of run-ins with authority. She and her best friend are obsessed with super spy Ruby Redfort and in this book, Clarice gets to try out some detective work at school
Recommended Ages 7-10
Clarice is having a hard time lately. Her best friend Betty moves away, the new girl Clem seems mean, her parents are fighting and may get divorced. She keeps a worry journal and follows the Ruby Redfort Survival Handbook for tips on how to get through all the bumps that continue to pop up in her life. She really loves her acting class and even gets a small part in a Ruby Redfort film. The premier is soon. The film company has sent her special tickets! This not as exciting as before since Betty is gone.
The book is written in journal form with different fonts and doodles here and there. This is an excellent example of what preteens think and worry about in life. Clarice is honest and droll. She and Betty write each other emails. Betty seems so happy that Clarice doesn't want to tell her the truth about life at home. Surprising events occur and Clarice must be brave even though she is not a super smart spy like Ruby Redfort. She tries to do the right thing and change may not be so bad after all. [...]
