About Audrey L and Audrey W:
The unique writing of Ivy + Bean meets the pep of Clementine and the authentic humor of Dory Fantasmagory in this chapter book series about two girls with the same name and absolutely, definitely, NOTHING else in common.
Over the course of a week in school, this bighearted, true-to-life chapter book will resonate with any young reader who's ever felt overlooked, second-best, or defined according to someone else. The first in a series, Best Friends-Ishprovides a fresh take on the joys and traumas of elementary school drama.
More than anything, second-grader Audrey wants to be the best at something. It always feels like she's not-quite-enough--not smart enough, not fast enough, not funny enough.
When her beloved Miss Fincastle announces that a new girl, another AUDREY, is joining the class, Audrey suddenly becomes Audrey L., which makes her feel worse than ever.
But is the new Audrey all bad? Might the two Audreys have more in common than just their name? And if the girls become friends, how will Audrey ever figure out how to be her best self--if she can't even be the best Audrey?
Visually dynamic and narratively unique, this chapter book series is perfect for fans of the Ivy + Bean, Deckawoo Drive, and The Penderwicks series.
