Nice Girls Club: New Best Friend is a novel written by Whitney Scott geared towards girls ages 8 to 12 years. The novel tells a story about a young girl, Brianna, who is challenged to reflect on her mean behavior and accept people for who they are. She has some experiences that empower her to be kind to others and exercise empathy. All of these experiences help her to build positive relationships with her family and peers.
Is there such a things as a mean girl?
Or is a mean girl actually a nice girl inside? When put in the right situation, can she learn to respect and appreciate people who are different from herself?
This is the question Brianna is about to answer for herself, whether she realizes or not. She doesn't like Asha, so she trips her, calls her smelly, and intentionally says things to her friends that Asha can overhear just to hurt her feelings.
Then something happens that Brianna could never have predicted. A change in her babysitter's schedule forces her to go home with Asha three days a week. At first, this plan sounds like torture, but soon, Brianna will find out that Asha isn't so bad after all.
Actually, they just might have a lot more in common than she thought, and maybe.... just maybe there's a chance they might even become friends.
