THE TRUTH (I’m a girl, I’m smart and I know everything) comes to the Manasquan School Girl’s Book Clubs

Being with the 5th and 6th grade girls was such fun. They had such great ideas for the second book in The Truth Series and so many real issues to discuss. Bullying is a real issue, as is being ignored or put down by a teacher. Both of these issues were included in the first book. I will make certain they reappear again in the second book. These are topics that need to be discussed. Another topic that all the girls seem to want in the next book is another crush. This time, they suggested it could be a bit more real, rather than mostly in the girl’s head. That makes sense to me, as the girl will be a year older. One girl suggested that she is at a school dance and she sees her best friend kissing the boy she likes. The other girl is so ashamed or embarrassed when the girl confronts her that at first she tries to lie and claims that she wasn’t at the dance. Of course the truth comes out and the girls have to deal with all the emotions sparked by the kiss.
Another topic discussed was best friends in general. Perhaps the girl could find a new best friend who was originally a bully, but now they get along.
Such great ideas! I am so happy that I have such wise girls to advise me, the psychologist!
