If you've got young readers in your life or library, here's a chance to win a copy of Best Friends, by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham!

My own kid loves this book and the first one in the series, Real Friends. Highly recommended for kids starting to navigate the ups and downs of making and keeping friends, plus knowing when to break up with friends who aren't so great.

Here's a reaction shot from when we got the first copy of this book:

I don’t usually share pictures of the kids but I kind of knew there would be a big reaction to this bookmail, so here is a live reaction shot 😂 Best Friends is the follow up to Real Friends, a book we had to put in “book time out” because this kid read it so many times that it was falling apart. Shannon Hale writes the experience of being a kid and trying to fit in so well that everyone we’ve gifted that first book to has come back to us for recommendations. LeYuen Pham’s artwork is super cute but she’s also excellent at facial impressions, which is important in a book so focused on emotions. Out on August 27! Thanks to @01firstsecond for this wonderful book! #kidscomics #readeradvisory #comics #graphicnovels

best-friendsBestselling creators of Real Friends Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham are back with a true story about popularity, first crushes, and finding your own path in the graphic novel, Best Friends.

Follow your heart. Find your people.

Sixth grade is supposed to be perfect. Shannon’s got a sure spot in the in-crowd called The Group, and her best friend is their leader, Jen, the most popular girl in school.

But the rules are always changing, and Shannon has to scramble to keep up. She never knows which TV shows are cool, what songs to listen to, and who she’s allowed to talk to. Who makes these rules, anyway? And does Shannon have to follow them?


Best Friends releases on 8/27. More about the book here (affiliate link).
