Extra Book: Just Jaime

Book: Just Jaime
Author: Terri Libenson
Pages: 256

This is my 147th read of the year.

I read this one with my two youngest children.  We are big fans of Terri Libenson's books and her twist endings..

This is the story of Jaime and her best friend Maya.  It is the end of 7th grade for both girls, and Jaime senses something is wrong.  But she doesn't know what.  Maya has something she needs to tell Jaime, but she is having trouble getting the courage to do so.  When Maya finally confesses her secret, it sends Jaime and Maya on a new path that neither expected.  Maya and Jaime learn what true friendship is all about and how being true to yourself makes all the difference

This was another great installment in the Terri Libenson books.  These are graphic novels which are big hits with the kids, and a fun way to tell a story.  The stories are funny, enlightening, and always have an ending you don't see coming.  This ending wasn't nearly as surprising as the other books of hers we have read, but it didn't take away from the story.  

Great story.  Glad we found these books and my kids like them.

Stars: 4 1/2


  1. Hi. I like your reviews.I saw your review of The Graveyard Book on As an author, I’m always looking for book reviews, but that’s even more important now, since the third book in my middle-grade series, Ghosters 3: The Secrets of the Bloody Tower, has just come out. So, I’ve come to you. Would you be interested in reading it and writing me an honest review? I can send you any version of e-book or paperback, if that’s what you prefer.
