Description

Although nine-year-old Claudia and Janice are neighbors, they call themselves twins. They have always been in the same class at school, and they are best, best friends. But when Janice moves away, Claudia must start fourth grade without her. It's not long before Janice's letters to Claudia fill with the names of new classmates. Poor Claudia wonders if she will ever find another friend as good as Janice. Join her as she discovers that she already has one--a friend who is closer than she thinks. Barbara Brooks Wallace is the best-selling author of many popular books for children, including the Edgar Award-winning Sparrows in the Scullery and the Miss Switch books. Young readers are sure to be drawn to the energetic, resourceful Claudia, and Christina Moore's lively narration provides the perfect voice for her.

Professional reviews

"Moore has done it again--another excellent reading job. She is terrific as the clueless mother in this story about an 8-year-old girl mourning her friend's moving away. She is good as the lead part, sounding a bit older than 8 but close enough to convey the poor girl's angst at facing fourth grade without her beloved soulmate. College-age brother is the only one sympathetic to her plight, sounding a bit gruff but understanding, even volunteering to help look for her treasure, the scab from her friend's knee. Anyone who's lived through fourth grade will relate to this one. A.G.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
