Friends. Bullies.

MIDDLE SCHOOL

Anthony is TPFW (Too Popular For Words), loves science, hates writing.

Leah is a super-shy nerd who’s finally making friends of her own.

What could they have in common?

A lot more than they thought, as it turns out!

But then one day they witness Anthony’s teammates bullying a sixth grader. What happens next could cement their new friendship—or blow it up forever.

New York Times bestseller Terri Libenson is back with a story about unexpected friendship and everyday bravery.

PRAISE FOR BECOMING BRIANNA: “Lacing the dialogue with spirited banter and laying on the life lessons with a light touch… All ends with party time . . . plus a climactic hora exuberant enough to leave everyone, readers included, smiling.” — ALA Booklist

“Readers will relate to Brianna’s attempts to manage her stress load as well as her insecurity and flaws as she works to form and maintain friendships.” — School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR JUST JAIME: “A delightful tale that navigates the precarious ebb and flow of friendship dynamics.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Libenson perfectly portrays the gaslighting and passive aggression that can be the hallmarks of middle-school relationships turned sour, and readers struggling with cracking of beloved friendships will find reassurance in the book’s ‘this too shall pass’ sentiment.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

PRAISE FOR POSITIVELY IZZY: “Libenson captures middle-school dramas—family, friendships, crushes, stereotypes, grades, self-discovery—with candor, fast pacing, and authentic, relatable characters. Positively satisfying.” — The Horn Book

“Libenson nicely touches on classic middle-grade tropes, such as shifting friendships, crushes, and developing confidence. A poignant twist ending adds a heartening note to an already charming story.” — ALA Booklist

PRAISE FOR INVISIBLE EMMIE: “This is middle grade fiction at its best. A fantastic debut novel with plenty of laughs and tons of heart. INVISIBLE EMMIE is unforgettable!” —  — Lincoln Peirce, New York Times-bestselling creator of Big Nate

“Clever, funny work by a great cartoonist. Reading INVISIBLE EMMIE sums up middle school: You laugh, you cry, you get beaned in the head with a volleyball.” — — Stephanie Perkins, internationally bestselling author of Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door
