Anne Mazer. ALL THAT GLITTERS ISN'T GOLD

Abby Hayes has never wanted a cell phone. In fact, when she notices how everywhere she goes, people are on their cell phone, it drives her crazy! She decides she really never, ever wants one! Her entire family agrees.

But one day on the bus, when fancy pants Brianna shows off her new mePhone, Abby is awestruck. She cannot believe a cell phone can be that shiny and wonderful. She instantly wants one.

Then her friends all begin texting each other and taking pictures on their cell phones. Abby is convinced that she must have a cell phone. The only hard part will be convincing her parents.

I heard about this series and thought it would be perfect for my school, since I noticed that we didn't have enough girl books. It's a great series for reluctant readers from around 3rd grade to 5th grade. There are about 20 books in the series. It will certainly fill a need! I know the girls will love Abby Hayes!
