Lerner Publishing Group through NetGalley provided me with an ARC of this book for my honest review.
This was the first book in the Mallory series for me, I had my 6 year old daughter read it to me and she really enjoyed it. The books are meant for 7-10 year olds so I think the way the author handled a new girl being inserted into the friendship was age appropriate. The words used were also right for the age group, my daughter had no problems reading or understanding any of the words used in the story. My only complaint was the pictures were in black and white but that could be because I had a digital ARC, I'll buy a hardback copy of the book when it comes out if the pictures are in color then it will be a 5 star read.
