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. ( )

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. ( )

This book is about the typical middle school scene. Three best friends go off to middle school, but their lives soon are not what they expected. Abigail did not make the cheer team, and she is not in the same homeroom as her two best friends. To girls these days, their lives are over. This would be a good book to have middle school read, but probably only the females. I could see the boys not liking it. You could have your students do activities in which they see how they relate to each of the characters as well. ( )

“Always Abigail” is about middle school drama. In all reality, the things that go on in Abigail’s life at this stage are relevant. Finding your place is one of the most important things in middle school, so the kids think. Learning about true friends and what is right and what is wrong, who you are, how you react are just a few of the real-life situations that middle school aged girls can relate to when reading this book. I like how the book uses a lot of dialogue and journal entries accompanied by various lists. This book is a must read for the middle school girl. ( )
