All Abigail wants is to be on the Pom-Poms with her best friends, but when she is placed in a different homeroom and is an alternate for the poms, she begins to feel left out. Her homeroom teacher assigns each student with a friendly letter writing partner, and Abigail is less than thrilled about her partner. As the school year progresses, Abigail begins to realize there are better things in life than being on the Pom-Poms. This book is great for middle school children. It is relatable and shows students it is more important for them to stand up for others and for themselves than it is to be part of the in-crowd. ( )

Always Abigail is about a teenage girl and her two friends who start off middle school together, but soon to dins out they are put into different classes. She is paired up with a girl, who is not popular, for a project. Her other friends tease the girl and they want Abigail to join. Abigail knows it is not right for her to do that. I like this book because it talks about problems that teenage girls go through in middle school. It talks about peer pressure. I would give this to teenage girls to read if they might be having the same problems Abigail is having. ( )

This is a chapter book that tells the story of a teenage girl named Abigail who gets her world flipped upside down when school starts and she gets put in different classes than her popular group and gets paired for an assignment with the outcast of the school. I think children, especially girls, would enjoy reading this book because it would most likely be relatable to them because they are also in grade school and could possibly be facing similar problems, such as bot being in the same class with their friends or being bullied or doing the bullying or trying their best to fit in. I think this book addresses a lot of real world problems that go on in schools and has a good moral story that children should definitely learn and be exposed to. ( )

Sixth graders, Abigail, Alli, and Cami have a dream to become pom pom girls as they face the new challenges of being separated . Will they reach their dreams and will they even be friends in the end? This book is great for keeping the interest of upper elementary grade girls. Even though it is a higher level book, it is a great way to introduce students to chapter books. ( )

Always Abigail is a cutesy story about a girl. When school starts she and her two best friends are excited about being Pom Girls. But the friends are assigned different classrooms. Abigail wants to be in on things, and even know she knows the right thing to do, has a had time having the back bone to do it. When she is paired up with the least popular girl in her grade for a project and it seems as if they have a lot in common, she ends up with frequent Gabby guilt. She gets a lot of pressure from her other friends and her crush to not be friendly with Gabby and join in in the teasing of her.
It takes Abigail a while to get to the place where she can decide what she wants and the kind of person she wants to be.
Cute format. Lots of list making and letters.
I don't know if this will have wide cross-gender appeal. ( )
