Turning cartwheels - when trying to fit in leaves you in a spin
Amy Adeney
UK Publication Date

Emma is desperate to join queen bee Carly's Cartwheel Club. Week after week Emma lines up for a try-out, only to be told that she hasn't made the cut. When Emma is finally accepted, she finds that Carly's rules and requirements take all the joy out of cartwheeling, and being part of the gang isn't as awesome as she expected. Turning Cartwheels cleverly explores the subtle, underhanded social bullying conducted by so-called 'frenemies' that is so often experienced by primary school-aged girls.
