When Elizabeth’s best friend runs away at the beginning of the school year to join the circus, Elizabeth has to face high school alone. Elizabeth is also forced to write to a complete stranger at the local private school by her English teacher to revive the “art of the envelope.” Right as Elizabeth and her pen-pal start getting closer and the boy on the bus starts to notice her, Celia comes back and turns everything upside-down again.
This book offers a great look into friendships in middle school and high school. The voices of the characters are very bright and funny. It’s a great read.
