Real True Friends (RA8 IA8-12)
Hannah moves to a new school where she must decide who is her real true friend - the Queen of Cool or Zoe 'Freaky' Frost. A funny and touching story about friendship and fitting in. Hannah has to start at a new school in the middle of term, when everybody has already made their own cosy group of friends - will anyone be willing to befriend Hannah? Michelle, the Queen of Cool, says she will be her friend, but only if she stops talking to Zoe 'Freaky' Frost. Should she ignore Zoe to hang out with the popular girls? A hilarious, cleverly written read, with a reading age of 8 so also suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers.
