From the Publisher:
From a debut author comes a heart-warming novel about a unique girl and her seventhgrade experiences.
Emma-Jean Lazarus is the smartest and strangest girl at William Gladstone Middle School. Her classmates donÂ't understand her, but thatÂ's okay because Emma-Jean doesnÂ't quite get them either. But one afternoon, all that changes when she sees Colleen Pomerantz crying in the girlÂ's room. It is through Colleen that Emma-Jean gets a glimpse into what it is really like to be a seventh grader. And what she finds will send her tumbling out of a tree and questioning why she ever got involved in the first place.
Orderly and pragmatic, 12-year-old Emma-Jean Lazarus doesn't have the easiest time at William Gladstone Middle School, but when she finds Colleen Pomerantz in the bathroom crying, she's curious. Soon, Emma-Jean finds herself helping out, and getting embroiled in other people's lives, in her own special way. Her own issues arise, and she starts to see outside of her own special world.
