The Friendship Matchmaker.
We can't help thinking of Emma! The author is an Australian human rights activist and litigator. Her main character, Lara Zany, is the self-appointed middle school friend matchmaker. She organizes people into categories and makes everything work. She strives for perfection in her own life to set a good example, as she takes her responsibilities seriously. Then a new person comes to town who doesn't follow Lara's rules and she has to rethink her job. Really cute & fun book for kids. Hb, Dj. 2011. Bloomsburykids/ Walker & Company, NY. List $15.99.
