Grade 2–4—In this installment, Emma must share her mother's attention with a new boyfriend. When she tries to wreck a date with a teensy lie (truth omission, really), she learns a difficult life lesson about feelings of guilt in a gentle and funny way. This easy-to-read chapter book is appealing and realistic, and fetching illustrations support the text. Emma's fans will be pleased.—Terry Ann Lawler, Phoenix Public Library, AZ

The sixth in Warner’s series finds third-grader Emma focused on a problem at home. She is disappointed to find out that her mother, divorced for two years, needs adult company and has been dating someone for months. Emma tries clumsily to make the relationship go away, and Warner realistically depicts a child’s confusing feelings in this situation as well as a single mother’s anger over bad behavior. Harper’s charming illustrations—varied in size but almost always featuring Emma—keep the story light as the adults figure out how to “handle things.” As Emma says, “That’s how grown-ups put it, like there’s a handle on top of every problem.” Grades 2-4. --Abby Nolan
