Description
Stickers, Silly Bandz, Rainbow Looms, fidget spinners . . . buttons?! A brand-new school story about friendship and fads from the bestselling author of Frindle.
This is war. Okay—that's too dramatic.
But no matter what this is called, so far I'm winning.
And it feels wonderful.
Grace and Ellie have been best friends since second grade. Ellie's always right in the center of everything—and Grace is usually happy to be Ellie's sidekick. But what happens when everything changes? This time it's Grace who suddenly has everyone's attention when she accidentally starts a new fad at school. It's a fad that has first her class, then her grade, and then the entire school collecting and trading and even fighting over . . . buttons?! A fad that might also get her in major trouble and could even be the end of Grace and Ellie's friendship. Because Ellie's not used to being one-upped by anybody. There's only one thing for Grace to do. With the help of Hank—the biggest button collector in the sixth grade—she will have to figure out a way to end the fad once and for all. But once a fad starts, can it be stopped?
Andrew Clements, the beloved author of Frindle, returns with a deliciously entertaining and deeply satisfying story that will resonate with anyone who's ever been in a classroom . . . or been a kid. A fad is a tough thing to kill, but then again, so is a friendship.
"On-point."—Publishers Weekly
"A girl accidentally starts a school fad, causing a rift with her best friend, in this latest novel from
Clements. The funny, science-loving Grace is an endearing narrator—just the right person to document the strange but creative ways her classmates' button obsession flourishes. A fun, charming story about fads and the friendships that
outlast them."—Booklist
Praise for Andrew Clements!

      • content: Bailey Carr narrates this charming school story about the social repercussions of fads. When visiting her grandfather at an old factory building he recently purchased, Grace finds boxes filled with thousands of buttons, which he happily lets her take. Grace brings some to school for show and tell and inadvertently starts a schoolwide trend. Though her classmates are interested in buttons for purely aesthetic reasons, Grace, a scientist, focuses on the history of button production and on the sociological ramifications of the button trend. Carr voices Grace's varied mindsets effectively. When Grace is speaking about science, Carr's enthusiasm signals the character's passion for her subject. As she reflects on the turmoil in her social life, she sounds like a typical dramatic middle schooler. S.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
