Eliza Bing Is (Not) a Star

We rated this book:


Eliza is not a very popular girl at her school, especially after she accidentally flooded the chemistry room. Her mom and dad wanted Eliza to get more involved in different things, so she signed up for Tae Kwon Do and an acting class. One of Eliza’s good friends, Annie, is in her acting class. Eliza is worried that Annie is drifting away from her because Annie has been hanging out with another girl named Paige. In acting class, they are working on the play Cinderella, and Eliza was cast as No. 3 Pig, but Paige was Cinderella, and Eliza is jealous. Will Eliza be able to keep her friendship with Annie and even be able to make a new friend along the way?

Eliza is just like any other sixth-grade girl from school, just trying to make friends and be liked by others. Sometimes when something bad happens at school, it can make people not like you, and it is hard to make them forget. Eliza feels pressure both at school and at home, but she has to learn how to deal with it, which makes her easy to relate to. I really enjoyed this story.
