Bernadette is having a hard time starting the school year. Her best friend moved and now she has to deal with bossy teachers and nosy younger kids. It’s only when she makes new friends, Annie, Keisha, and Megan that she finds a way to survive school.
Bernadette is an original—imaginative, organized, moody, but resourceful…Poet and literary critic Glickman’s first novel for children realistically captures elementary-school life with sympathy and humor.
