Meet the best friends who call themselves The Bubblebum Babes: Emily – the sweet, shy girl, Megan – cool and sassy, Sara - the smart tomboy, and Kelly –all-American girl.
The stories of four twelve year old girls’ first year in middle school are told by Kelly, who plays a part in each of the girl’s life struggles -- from boy problems to report card issues, jealousy, and the trouble with parents. The girls share it all at “Bubblegum Babe Meets” -- weekend sleepovers that include eating pizza, girl talk, and much laughing and crying.
Sixth grade isn’t easy. But the Bubblegum Babes survive it because, well, very simply – they have each other.
The Bubblegum Babes' Guide to Sixth Grade is the first in a series of books about friendship and growing up. Written in vignette style by Novelist, Doreen Lewis, the Babe characters are inspired by the real lives of Lewi'’s children and their friends.
"A Bubblegum Babe meet is always a good thing, even when it’s a bad thing. That might not make sense, but I can sure remember plenty of times our meet together was hard. Maybe two of us would have an argument and the rest of us would pick sides. They were times that tested our friendship. Even still, somehow we survived having differences."
