From the award-winning author of This Journal Belongs to Ratchet, a hilarious and heartwarming story about cheerleading, popularity, and middle school survival told exclusively through lists and letters.

Always Abigail is the perfect growing up book for girls, and with its illustrated format, this book is perfectly suited for reluctant readers kids aged 9-12 who love graphic novels.

Sixth Grade To Do List:
  • Make the Pom Pom Squad!
  • Be best friends forever with Alli and Cami
  • Don't panic when #1 and #2 look like they're totally not going to happen
  • Abigail and her two best friends are poised for a life of pom-poms and popularity. But not only does Abigail end up in a different homeroom, she doesn't make the squad. Then everyone's least favorite teacher pairs Abigail up with the school's biggest outcast for a year-long Friendly Letter Assignment. Abigail can hardly believe her bad luck! As her so-called best friends and dreams of pom pom fame start to slip away, Abigail has to choose between the little bit of popularity she has left or letting it go to be a true friend.
