Now the day of reckoning is here and she must dive head first into the sixth grade. And wouldn't you know it, on that very first day she makes an utter fool of herself by writing a totally fictitious essay that her teacher reads to the whole class. The worst of it is, the three girls she longs most to be friends with, the Palmetto Princesses, swallow her story hook, line and sinker. When they find out the truth, will they ever speak to her again?
The Palomino Princesses as an engaging, sweet story of a young girl facing challenges and grappling with emotional issues when thrust into a new environment. With the help of her father, who is always willing to lend a sympathetic ear, her teacher, and some of her classmates, she learns to fit in. But not without a few more pitfalls along the way. Ah, I would that all sixth graders were as kind as they are in this story. I recommend it to lower middle grade girls.
Scott Beemer - the quick-to-smile, bubble-gum-popping, all-around, good kid is especially entertaining. This book took me back to my own childhood. I am used to reading this author's romance novels, so it was very nice to see her stretch herself into children's fiction. Way to go!
