School Library Journal - 11/01/2019 Gr 1–3—In this series debut, totally inseparable besties Allie and Amy make their summer plans. On "THE LIST" are getting their fortunes told, attending the Spring Fair, skating and singing backwards, going swimming, and making a new list of things to do. But plans go awry when Allie's parents announce they are sending her to sleepaway camp, which will leave Amy at home without her BFF. The humorous plot will appeal to emerging and reluctant readers, while the accessible text will help them gain confidence in navigating the story on their own. The illustrations and use of eye-catching line art complement strategically placed large font. Part of the "Quix" line of short chapter books, this title features short paragraphs, full-page and spot black-and-white line art, lots of white space, a word list, and conversation starter questions at the end of the book. VERDICT A recommended purchase for beginning reader collections.—Cheryl Blevens, Cunningham Memorial Library, Indiana State University - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
