For Lily, it's the worst first day of school ever. Who would want to be friends with the new girl, whose debut act is to throw up on the playground (on somebody's shoes!)? Fortunately, quirky Darby comes to the rescue. Darby likes frogs and candy and oddball stuff, and soon she and Lily have formed their own club-- the Rizzlerunk Club. But before you can say "BFF," Darby's former best friend, mean-spirited Jill-- who had moved to London-- returns unexpectedly. Can Lily and Darby's friendship survive the British invasion? Peppered with charming illustrations and hilarious mishaps involving "conjoined" frogs, accidentally shaved eyebrows, and school pranks gone awry, this engaging tale of fourth-grade life will have readers wishing they could join the Rizzlerunk Club for real.

When you're the new kid in school (and town), one worry can dominate all the others: fitting in and finding friends. When you are super shy, self-conscious, and sensitive, that worry can easily become obsessive anxiety. That's Lily, and she's not helped by the fact that she vomits in the middle of recess on her first day of school. That's only the beginning; the bad first-impressions keep piling up. All Lily's attention is absorbed by the many things going wrong, and she nearly misses the things that are working right. Luckily, she is an entertaining narrator and who is able to find the humor in her situation (even when she can't see it for herself). So this ends up being a lighthearted, funny look at the social struggles of the young. A relatable, charming, and fun book.
