Not all books can help you, as Emily found out. This is a book about a girl named Emily. Emily is looking for a friend. She even got a book on being a best friend. Emily does everything it says to do in the book but it is not working. At the end of the book, Emily thinks the book is wrong. It is better to have a couple of friends then having one best friend.
I would recommend this book to other people who like to read books about friendship. The pictures are really good because they show how Emily feels. I thought this was a good book because it tells how much Emily wanted a friend.
