breaking up by aimee friedman and christine norrie


Mix High School Musical with Sweet Valley High then add a dash of Strawberry Shortcake and you'll have something that approximates this little graphic novel full of masochistic mean girl friendships and stereotypical characters. That isn't to say that plenty of young ladies won't thoroughly enjoy watching popular-girl-with-an-arty-side Zoe mourn her love hate relationship with bitchy-glam-boyfriend-stealing Mackenzie. They will. But they should read Paige by Paige instead. Grade 6+
