Chopstick (Friends for a Season #2)
Paige Winsome and Kate Kennedy meet each other when Paige buys a guitar from Kate and a friendship forms. Both girls are in the same singer-song writer contest to win four hundred dollars to give toward either buying gifts for little kids that are poor (Kate) or giving animals to elderly people who lost family (Paige). Each girl needs the money but there is one problem, only one girl can win. Will this contest destroy their friendship or improve it? There is one more problem though, both of their dads work for the same company, Rainmaker, who is about to go out of business, but even if they find a buyer for the company, both their dads might lose their jobs.
Chopstick was so good that I didn't want to put it down. This book is what you call a page turner. I enjoyed reading this book so much. Chopstick switches back and forth from Paige to Kate every chapter telling what's happening in each girls life. This book is very easy to read for people eight and up. I recommend that everyone read Chopstick, especially preteen girls. They also have a website at http://www.friendsforaseason.com, and there are three other books in this series.
