Lizzie Miletti buys herself a diary on the first day of sixth grade. This novel, the first in a new series called Dear Diary, follows Lizzie's trials and tribulations through Halloween, when she hosts a disastrous slumber party. Lizzie wants to be part of the in crowd, and when glamorous Samantha makes friendly gestures, Lizzie thinks she's on her way. At the party, Lizzie alienates her best friend by favoring Samantha, who, it turns out, only wants to be around Lizzie's attractive older brother. Lizzie's problems are realistic without being too serious; her diary offers a light, good-hearted story that readers will enjoy. Ages 8-12. (Aug.)
