Excellent, Clare Hutton, Primary, Intermediate, American Girl, Friends, Girls, Friendship
Normally, Emma loves every single moment with her twin cousins, Natalia and Zoe. But things change when Emma's mom and Natalia and Zoe's mom decide to fix up their mom's old house and transform it into a bed and breakfast. Emma has a hard time adjusting to living with so many people, attending a new school, and making new friends. Plus, she misses her dad, who had to stay behind and tie up some lose ends. When the twins' friend who doesn't seem to like Emma ends up in their English class group project, they figure out how to make things work, use all of their talents, and eventually, become friends. Emma learns that family is forever, communication is key, and that stressing out doesn't help anything.
