Praise for One Of Us:

"With humor and heart, One of Us explores the stress of peer pressure and what is truly lost when we try to fit in. Its simple, powerful message; true friends respect what makes you who you are. This is a terrific conversation starter for parents and teachers, and a must-read for kids."

— Rachel Simmons, author of Odd Girl Out and The Curse of the Good Girl

"Truth sings off the page of this plucky picture book. With its generous heart and lively illustrations, One of Us is easily one of my favorites."

Our Friendship Rules, By Peggy Moss and Dee Dee Tardif. Illustrated by Alissa Imre Geis

available in Paperback - June, 2011!

Alexandra and Jenny have been best friends for a long time. But when Alexandra is momentarily dazzled by the glamour of a new girl at school, she's willing to do almost anything to be the cool girl's friend. Ultimately, she tells Jenny's biggest, most important secret--and just like that, Alexandra is in! When Alexandra sees the hurt she's caused, she knows she has to figure out a way to regain the friendship that's far more important to her than being invited to sit with the popular girls.

Our Friendship Rules is both a lyrical story of forgiveness and a simple, sweet but instructive tale about true friendship.
