I know the cover looks childish, but I think it’s actually a pretty cool book cover for this book. I thought it would be too childish but found that I really enjoyed reading this book.
Julia’s summer has started on a bad note. She and her best friend, Taylor, are playing when a new girl moves in across the street, Alyssa. Alyssa has a very high opinion of herself and enjoys looking down on others. She could easily be considered rather mean-spirited. Taylor immediately is drawn to her and wants to grow up faster, which Alyssa can offer because she’s allowed a lot of freedom. Alyssa introduces a new game called Russia, which is really hard. Now that Taylor and Alyssa are friends and treat Julia rather badly, Julia has to find a way to get through her summer. One thing keeping her going is the battle she is to have over Russia with Alyssa and the other is her friend Peter, whom she secretly has a crush on.
I like the parents. So often the parents don’t parent and are too preoccupied with their own lives to raise their child in young adult fiction. These parents are smart and realistic. They pay attention and intervene when necessary without bad-mouthing anyone. They are honest without being judgmental, which is a good lesson for people of all ages. I also like the lesson on friendship. This is a book about dealing with people; it discusses how to respond when people are mean or don’t like us. There’s a lot of good advice and it’s very true to life and realistic. Even if you’re an eighth grader, this book is a good reminder of how to handle people and even a look back at friendships that have dissipated and better friendships that have developed. It’s a nice, easy, enjoyable book. ( )

Julia is looking forward to a long, lazy summer with her best friend Taylor. She doesn't expect anything more memorable than the emergence of the dormant cicadas. But then Alyssa moves in. Alyssa is new, sophisticated, exciting....mean. She seems to hate Julia from the beginning for no reason and worst of all, she steals Taylor away. She also brings a new game, Russia, and Julia finds herself challenging Alyssa. If she wins the battle of Russia will she win back Taylor and make everything go back to the way it was?
This isn't a screed against bullying or mean girls or about Growing Up, although all those things are included. The hot, lazy summer is perfectly capture, the prose is lovely in its simplicity, and the characters are drawn so realistically you can hand this to any number of girls and know they will find themselves somewhere in its pages. It's about realizing that friendships are complicated - and growing up to the point of realizing that people are complicated.
I liked that there wasn't a cut and dried ending to the book, or an epiphany where Julia realizes Who Her True Friends Are. In fact, you could almost call the ending jarring; reading it as an adult, it's easy to get so deeply into Julia's character you find yourself thinking and feeling along with her and expecting that perfect ending. It's a reminder that, as you grow up, you'll realize more and more that life is messy and people are messy. Some people are cruel. Some people are kind. Most people, like Julia, are somewhere in the middle.
I'm in love with the length of the book - just 200 pages - which will make this super easy to sell to my reluctant girl readers who often love realistic fiction, but don't want to dig into the lengthier volumes they usually come in. It would make a great summer read. I am not, to be totally honest, in love with the cover. I like it as an adult, but it's going to be difficult to sell to the readers I have in mind who would most appreciate this book - it looks too young. I know photograph covers are a bit cliched, but they're what really sell books to this age group because they look more grown-up.
Verdict: There is so much in this slim little book. It never falls into stereotypes, presents nuanced characters, and perfectly captures the minds and hearts of its protagonists - and I think it will capture readers as well. I've cut my order lists to the absolute bone because of my big Neighborhoods project, but this title is going to be on my next order list no matter what!
