Summary
Junior high school girls, meet your new BFF! Izzy Kline faces all the drama of middle school with total honesty and deep heart.

Hiding out in the girls' bathroom . . .
FaceTiming one friend while group chatting two others . . .
Forced to ballroom dance with a boy for a social studies unit . . .

There is a LOT going on in middle school.

New experiences and shifting dynamics are around every turn. And it's not just her friends--Izzy's family is shifting as well. It's anxiety-inducing but also thrilling as Izzy learns to stake her claim.

For fans of Fish in a Tree and verse novels like Brown Girl Dreaming , Beth Ain's books perfectly capture the drama of adolescence with a ton of light humor and deep heart.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this poignant sequel to Izzy Kline Has Butterflies (2017), Izzy experiences the social upheavals of middle school. In sixth grade, everything changes for Izzy. Her best friend abandons her for the popular table. Her social-studies teacher forces her to learn ballroom dancing with a boy she hates, then likes, then hates again. At home, Izzy has to deal with her increasingly distant older brother and with her divorced parents' new relationships. Everyone, it seems, is moving on except for Izzy, who often flashes back to her easier elementary-school days. Like its predecessor, this story is told in free verse, which makes events flow along quickly. And yet, Izzy's observations often encourage pause and reflection, such as this one about the seemingly identical girls at the popular table: I pictured them with a / bracket around them. / 12 into 12 / is 1, / no remainders. / We don't fit. By showing Izzy looking back but also taking tentative steps forward, Ain movingly captures the dizzying process of growing up.--Turk, Mariko Copyright 2018 Booklist"
