Though this may not be a popular book, it's certainly a great one. This hidden gem has been in my personal collection for the better part of 10 years now and I re-read it every year and loan it out to all the teenagers in my life who are struggling with who they are. Each of them has bought their own copy.

We have a strong heroine, an interesting cast, and a wonderful story.

Eight-year-old EllRay is down to one-and-a-half best friends, which leads his little sister to point out the obvious: he needs new friends. A spare, at least. For emergencies. So EllRay decides to audition other boys for the role of Spare Best Friend. EllRay’s class is brimming with possibilities, but no one seems to share his exact interests. What’s so great about car parts? And why would anyone think boring instruction manuals are fun to read? But EllRay isn’t worried—he can fix any problems once he gets to know each kid. And the only way to get to know them is to come up with fun things to do at recess. When he’s the Recess King, everyone will want to be his friend!… (more)

EllRay Jakes is tired of being bullied by fellow classmate Jared Matthews. But when EllRay tries to defend himself, he winds up in trouble. Then his dad offers him a deal: If he stays out of trouble for one week, they'll go to Disneyland! EllRay says he can do it. But saying it and doing it are two very different things.
