Me, Me, Me
Annie, Lillemor, and Lilianne are friends. They all speak English, but Lillemor can also speak German and so can Lilianne, which is quite unusual (I speak two languages, too). They usually get along, but when they decide to enter a school talent show as a singing group, things change. Annie wants to decide everything, the song to sing, the dress to wear, and how to share the parts. The two friends are okay with it at first, but then they get fed up, and they tell Annie that she’s making it a me-me-me group, so Annie decides to go solo. But when she tries other partners for the show, she is not too happy. And Lilianne and Lillemor can’t quite hit the high notes Annie can hit. So the next day, Annie apologizes and the friends accept the apologies. They make decisions together this time and win the contest with the group name ALL ONE. This was a nice book about what it takes to be a good friend. I liked it a lot.
