The second coming of Clementine: A laugh-out-loud funny and smart new chapter-book series!

Sylvie Scruggs knows she can be a little bit difficult. Sometimes she says things she shouldn't. Sometimes she does things she oughtn't. And in those cases, she turns to her best friend, Miranda, who understands difficulty, and always knows how to help.

So when Sylvie gets home from a long and boring vacation to find that Miranda has befriended Georgie Diaz - that Georgie and Miranda have eaten root beer floats and staged a funeral together - she sees her place as Miranda's best friend threatened. And she knows something must be done.

Georgie Diaz is Sylvie's worst enemy. He always calls her Scruggs. He always beats her in baseball. (Plus, he's a boy.) Now he's getting Miranda a new pet and a birthday present, so Sylvie's going to do the same. Only she's going to do it ten times better. With the help of her twin brothers, a ferret, blocks, and some glitter glue, Sylvie sets out to make Miranda remember who her REAL best friend is, and forget about Georgie forever.
