This book is about two girls with two very different backgrounds who move to a new school at the same time. Even though one girl is considered a prep and the other girl is more of a rebel, the two girls end up finding common ground and become best friends.

Mickey and Margalo are both new students in the 5th grade, and somehow, nobody's quite sure how, because they look like complete opposites, but somehow, they become the best of friends and battle their way through the fifth grade. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0590601350, Paperback)

Bad Girls is the story of two fifth-graders, Mickey Elsinger and Margalo Epps, whose friendship is portrayed through acts of loyalty, betrayal, mischief, and kindness that probe the sweetness and vindictiveness of girls that age. Much of the story pivots on the ethics displayed when Margalo places a squished squirrel in the lunch sack of Rhonda Ransom, who had viciously derailed Mickey's chance to be elected class president, and when Mickey and Margalo stand together in front of the principal when confronted with the act.
