Andrew Clements Æ The Friendship War PDF

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 wonderfulGrace 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 Leave it to Andrew Clements to come up with an amusing new school fad The summer before sixth grade Grace Hamlin travels alone to visit her grandfather in Massachusetts He recently purchased an old building and plans on turning it into a little mall; Gramma died a while back and he needs a project to distract him from the sadness Grace approves but what really gets her attention about the building are the old boxes stuffed with buttons from clothing As something of a hoarder she asks Grampa to ship the buttons home to her and with a merry twinkle in his eye he agrees Grace's family will be surprised when twenty seven boxes of buttons show up at their door She'll have to think uick of a place to store them Grace misses Grampa when she goes home to Illinois but she's excited for the upcoming school year Her best friend Ellie Emerson is a popular girl who always takes charge; she's fun pretty and occasionally generous so Grace doesn't mind terribly that she bosses her around When an opportunity arises for Grace to share her new button collection at school kids are impressed she has plastic and metal buttons ones with bright colors and intricate designs buttons made from semiprecious stones or formed into novel shapes These are just the small sampling Grace brings to school; she has hundreds of thousands at home in the boxes Grampa sent Grace enjoys the attention but Ellie isn't happy that someone is in her spotlight She organizes and brings in her own collection of buttons curated to tell the Emerson family story as far back as her great great grandfather who fought in World War I The worn out metal buttons that Ellie holds are all that's left of a soldier who wore them in the heat of battle Perturbed by Ellie's one upmanship Grace gives away some of her own buttons at lunchtime and Ellie reluctantly does the samethe buttons that aren't heirlooms of course No one expects what the great button giveaway will lead to A scientific thinker Grace observes with interest as the buttons rapidly spread among the student body Other kids at Avery Elementary School bring in their own unusual buttons showing off and trading them like at a swap meet Grace has theories about the nature and potential duration of the fad but there's one big problem Ellie She and Grace lock horns when Ellie insists she have priority in trades for the most desirable buttons Grace typically yields to Ellie's strong personality but she started this craze not Ellie and she feels just as entitled to trade for the best buttons Grace has wondered recently if Ellie is a true friend or just likes being around girls she can dominate and the uestion gains relevance as a button war emerges between them Grace wishes she could pull the plug on this fad but Ellie is in command now Then Grace learns that their other friend Hank Powell has extensively researched buttons the past few days He can discern valuable from common ones and offers to help Grace assess the hundreds of thousands of buttons she stashed at home It turns out she likes letting Hank sift through her collection and take what he wants; he's so excited by the sheer variety of buttons As the war with Ellie intensifies Hank withdraws uncomfortable at being caught in the middle but Grace doesn't want to let Ellie win the way she always does Are exotic buttons worth jeopardizing her friendship with Ellie and Hank or can Grace find a solution that allows them to reconcile and move beyond the fad The Friendship War was the last Andrew Clements book published before he passed away in November 2019 His thirty five years as a children's author produced beloved works including Frindle Lunch Money The Janitor's Boy The Jacket and the five part Benjamin Pratt the Keepers of the School series a special favorite of mine The Friendship War features subtle nuanced relationships among Grace and her classmates; their vocabulary might be too sophisticated to believe and in my opinion Grace ultimately accepts too much blame for her part in the war with Ellie but perhaps the latter is how real relationships are A single dramatic episode doesn't transform the natural roles that friends take in relation to each other I appreciate Grace's discovery of Hank how she notices during her conflict with Ellie that he's a enjoyable friend than she realized Grace sees it like a chemistry experiment When elements combine they don't actually change but they sometimes link up and form a new compound the way hydrogen and oxygen join to make water That's how this feels And if I had to describe this new compound It's 99 percent fun and 1 percent sweet Who knows how Grace and Hank's relationship will evolve in sixth grade and beyond I'd rate The Friendship War two and a half stars; it's a pretty good novel that had me pondering the nature of friendship We'll miss your storytelling Mr Clements
