The Long-Distance Dispatch Between Lydia Goldblatt and Julie Graham-Chang Paperback
by AMY IGNATOW
Part of the The Popularity Papers series
After spending a year studying popularity, Julie and Lydia are finally ready to put their hard-earned lessons to use in junior high.
But before they can conquer the world together, tragedy strikes: Lydia's mum gets a six-month job in London!
Lydia is thrust into a new school with ugly school uniform, snobby schoolmates and a reputation as the "Violent American." Meanwhile Julie's stuck navigating the cliques of school on her own, where she finds herself adopted by a group of troublemaking year eights known as the "Bichons" (after the adorable dogs, though they're anything but adorable themselves).
The two best friends have to learn to keep in touch and stand on their own, assisted as always by their trusty notebook.
Amy's signature sense of humour and her knack for capturing the trials and tribulations of friendships of all stripes will satisfy fans of the first book and introduce more readers to the charms of Lydia and Julie.
Like all books in the series, this will be full-colour, illustrated in Amy's authentic scrapbook style.
