New Girl: The Further Adventures of Elinormal (Paperback)
Out of Stock, but we can likely order it for you. We will advise if we cannot.
Elinor Malcolm is ready for the first day of seventh grade, when a last-minute phone call turns her world upside down, and she misses the first week of school. When she returns, she’s known as the new girl, even though she’s not.
In this sequel to Elinormal, Elinor learns all too quickly that people are complicated and relationships take work. Lots of work. As she’s discovering who she is, who she wants to be, and what she wants most in life, Elinor is balancing friendships, old and new. She’s also unraveling her mother’s mysterious past.
New Girl further explores the complexity of friendships, the reality of disappointments, and the trouble with secrets.
