Book Review


Lily knows she’s doomed to a life with no friends when she throws up in front of everyone at recess. That’s why she’s surprised when she begins to like Darby, the very girl who made fun of her every day in class. Soon, the two become best friends and create their own club, the Rizzlerunk Club, named after the captain of a ship that sank in a nearby lake. Everything changes when Darby’s former best friend comes back to school and gets invited to join their club. Lily realizes the old friend is not a good influence on either of them. She must learn to stand up for herself and say no to bad ideas, no matter how fun they sound, while encouraging Darby to do the same.
