Margot Button has a resolution for seventh grade: Be more normal.
Easier said than done. But, if Margot can learn to control her big mouth (and hair), there is hope. The new girl, Em, from New York, needs a friend too, now that the popular girls have decided she's "weird." More accurately, Em is "intimidating." She dresses like a rock star and doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks of her-especially Sarah J., the most popular girl in the seventh grade. Em has an agenda for change at Manning Middle School and wants Margot on her side. Progress!
So, okay, Em has a flexible relationship with the truth, and her secret campaign to turn the tables on the popular girls may involve bending some laws. But after years of enduring Sarah J.'s bullying, Margot finds it hard to resist. Her approval rating is finally up-and, it really couldn't hurt to take Sarah down a few notches...could it?
Endearingly imperfect and utterly charming, Margot Button is irresistible in this heartwarming novel about friendship, bullies and the travails of middle school.
