" How did I miss posting a review of this? Who hasn't been dumped by their friends? Libenson perfectly captures the pain when your friends "grow up" before you do. " said.

" I really enjoyed reading this book. I liked how the book was from two different points of view because it made the story much more interesting to read. " said.

" Very valuable story about learning who your true friends are. Having gone through some similar stuff as both a middle-schooler AND an adult, it's nice to know that I am not alone. (I wish I had more courage sometimes though!) " said.

" I had absolutely NO idea that this was coming out! What a surprise delight!! This was another five-star read from Libenson. This story was just SO middle school, and perfectly blended two perspectives on the same issue. " said.

" Cute read for middle school girls dealing with typical middle school drama. A nice twist with mom and french teacher interaction. Parts felt a bit preachy, but the interactions between the characters was believable. Looking forward to booktalking it to my MS students! " said.

" I felt like I was reliving my own middle school experience. Typical girl-drama and finding your place in middle school. But the true question is always the same: who are your real friends, who can you trust, and who makes you happy? Don't always just follow the crowd! " said.

" Jaime and Maya have been best friends since kindergarten but as they near the end of 7th grade their friendship is strained when they start hanging out with ‘it girl’ Cece. Then on the last day of school Maya friend dumps Jaime and tells her that she no longer fits into the group.Told in the alternating perspectives of Maya and Jaime this is a great story that captures the friend/popularity struggles that many girls face in middle school. Good for ages 10 and up. " said.

"Just Jaime by is about BFFs Jaime and Maya, who have reached that lovely 7th-grade friend milestone where everything starts to change. Jaime feels Maya and the rest of her friend group pulling away from her and treating her like she’s not cool enough and Maya wants to do everything their mean girl friend group leader wants — even if that means ditching Jaime. On the last day of school, everything hits the fan.

This felt so real! It captured perfectly that phase we all had to suffer through where friends who were exactly like you one week morphed into something different the next. It’s also told from both points of view (Jaime’s is illustrated while Maya’s is full-on graphic novel) so you get to see the struggle they both go through and lessons they learn.

I can’t wait to recommend it to fans of Dork Diaries and Raina Telgemeier’s books.
" said.
