    1. It's a cute book, but the real draw for me was the totally normalized two moms of one character. I'm still so thirsty for representation. When will we get a queer girl in tween lit? Not that we have so many middle-school queer guys, but at least there's Joe in Totally Joe and Nate in Better Nate Than Ever and Frederick in So Hard to Say.


    2. Best Friends Next Door was about this girl named Hannah and another girl named Emme. Their names are palindromes. Hannah is a medium height and a little awkward. Her birthday is on New Years. Her life has not been fun lately. Hannah wishes she had a cat and her best friend next door moved. Meet Emme her birthday is on New Years and she has an enormous orange cat. Emme is so short she was mistaken for a kindergartner. She just moved Next door and it's really hard for her. Will they become friends [...]


    3. This was really good and HURT me. It just gets so much right about feeling jealous and left out, mean girls, and I kind of want to go curl into a little ball right now and cry about the things that were missing from my childhood life.I'd give it five stars, but I needed to put me back together a little at the end and it left me hanging.But it did remind me that I should read more Mackler. She can get me emotional in ways that very few authors do. (I'm one of those robots.)


    4. Ten-year-olds Hannah and Emme both love the color blue, hate pizza, have January 1st birthdays, and enjoy competitive swimming. So when Emme moves in next door, she's fast friends with Hannah. But friendships have their ups and downs, and they're chronicled in this book spanning six months of Hannah and Emme's fifth-grade year.I struggled with this book, even though it's the kind of middle-grade book I tend to like the best: realistic and focusing on friendships and families. But the book's lack [...]


    5. This book is a perfect example of why parents really need to be vigilant about checking on what their kids are reading. This book is geared towards elementary school children and yet lesbian parents are a huge part of the storyline in an obvious way, not the way parents and teachers are usually secondary benign characters in children's literature. I quit reading at page 36, where one poor confused girl is talking about the characteristics the girl inherited from both her momsd that she is too yo [...]



    6. Me and my friend read this for a book talk. i wasn't to interested but people who enjoy books about happy friends ship building. The book wasn't to long and but did drag on a bit. Over all i wouldn't read again


    7. My Thoughts – Hannah is a ten year-old girl that is forced to deal with a lot of change in her life at the same time. Her best friend next door named Sophie moves to Canada. Her step mom adopts her. Her parents tell her she’s going to be a big sister. A new little girl moves in next door in Sophie’s old house.Hannah doesn’t know how to deal with everything in her life that is changing. It takes her awhile but she does eventually warm up to the new girl next door. It turns out that her [...]


    8. Captures perfectly the ups and downs of a close friendship. Perfect for those who have a best friend (not all do or need or want one). Charming.


    9. Listened to the audio. I am not particularly a fan of Tara Strong's voice work here. She does this weird nasally thing that's especially jarring because the other narrator doesn't do it at all. (Tara Strong is the voice actress for Raven from Teen Titans, so just imagine a book being narrated that way. It's also annoying because, as you can see by her extensive resume, that's a choice she made for this particular character.)So yeah, that's my least favorite part of the book.My favorite part is p [...]


    10. Best Friends Next Door Meet Hannah. Her name is a palindrome. Shes born on New Years Day. She is also on the Swim team. Her friend used to live next door. She moved to Canada. Now there is a girl named Emme living in that house. You see,there quite in common. Hannah has also been going through a lot as well. She's even starting to LIKE pizza!(WHO DOESN'T LIKE PIZZA!!!!!) Meet Emme. Her name is a palindrome. Shes born on New Years Day. She is also on the swim team. She has taken place of Hannah [...]


    11. Best Friend Next Door by Carolyn Mackler was a emotional book. I loved it! It is a book I know most girls can relate to! This book starts when it talk but Hannah, her name is a palindrome, she loves peanut butter anything, her birthday is New Years Eve, She hates pizza, and she wishes she has a cat! Meet Emme, her name is a palindrome, she loves peanut butter anything, her birthday is New Years Eve, She hates pizza, and She has an enormous orange cat! The two girls are almost like twins! But tha [...]


    12. 214 pages. A story about a girl who is starting fifth grade in two weeks. She learns her step-mother is pregnant. There is some discussion about this. One of her new friends has two moms. It is pretty edgy content for elementary . Skip this one. Not recommended.



    13. Best Friend Next Door was a wonderful book. I had so many connections with this book. Like the orange fat cat. Just like my cat coco. i cant wait for my younger sisters when they learn how to read.





    14. I loved this book, two friends Hannah and Emme have exciting lives with a lot of drama and excitement. I love the way it ends at the end where Hannah gets a new baby brother from the hospital.


    15. Best Friend Next Door is about two girls, Hannah and Emme, and their evolving relationship with each other. The main characters are Hannah and Emme, along with the main supporting characters, Butterball(their enormous orange cat that they share) Mom J, Mom C, Margo, and Hannah's dad. The book follows both Hannah and Emme's perspectives, which switches every chapter.Meet Hannah. She is medium height, and has sandy greenish hair from swimming. She is on the dolphins swim team, and in Silver level. [...]


    16. Hannah is sad when her best friend Sophie moves to Canada, and she's not happy when the girl who moves in next door is wearing the same shirt she has on, has the same birthday, and likes peanut butter but hates pizza! In addition to missing her best friend, Hannah is upset because her step mom, Margo, who is soon adopting her, is having a baby. Emme isn't happy about moving from a warm island to a cold, landlocked place, and she's unhappy when her cat Butterball goes missing and ends up at Hanna [...]


    17. When Hannah's best friend Sophie moves away, and Emme and her moms move into Sophie's old house, Hannah is a little uncertain about making friends. Soon, though, she and Emme realize they have many things in common, including their palindromic first names, their taste in clothing, a hatred for pizza, and a love for competitive swimming. As Emme acclimates to her new home and Hannah tries to get used to the idea that her stepmom is soon to have a baby, the two girls live through the typical ups a [...]


    18. What else could go wrong for Hannah? Her best friend has just moved away. Her father and step mother has just announced they're going to have a baby. And now this new girl moves in with the same birth date (New Year's Day), wearing the same tye die shirt and claiming to hate pizza (just like Hannah)! Is this some weird joke?Why did they have to leave Florida? Emme doesn't want to live in this new place. She misses her friends back home especially since the girl next door doesn't seem to want he [...]


    19. Hannah and her new next-door neighbor Emma learn they have much in common – they share the same birthday, are both in fifth grade, have names that are palindromes (they both love palindromes!), detest pizza, love Emma’s cat Butterball, and have feelings they are keeping secret from their families and from each other. Told in alternating chapters by Hannah and Emma, they discover during the year that friendships will change with time because people grow and change. They learn theirs is rock-s [...]


    20. Printz Honor and New York Times bestselling author Carolyn Mackler brings honesty and charm to this story of a friendship between two girls. Meet Hannah. Her name is a palindrome. Her birthday is on New Year’s. She wishes she had a cat. She’s medium height and a little awkward. Her life has NOT been fun lately -- her dad and stepmom are having a baby and, worst of all, her best friend next door just moved away. Now a new girl is here, taking over her best friend’s bedroom . . . and her own [...]


    21. Hannah is devastated when her best friend Sophie moves away just before they she becomes a 5th grader. Coincidentally, Emme also an almost 5th grader moves into Sophie's old house. Hannah keeps her distance from her new neighbor, until her beloved cat Butterball disappears. Emme turns out to be the only person who knows where the cat is living. Before long Emme, and Hannah become fast friends, they share the same birthday, a name that is a palindrome, and they even dress alike. Packed with the s [...]


    22. When her best friend next door moves away, Hannah is despondent. But things begin to look up when a girl just her age moves in. Emme is the exact same age (they actually have the same birthday), she also loves to swim and hates pizza. And her name is a palindrome - just like Hannah's! They quickly become best friends, but both girls are dealing with their own issues too. Hannah's stopmom is pregnant - and after all of these years of being an only child she isn't at all excited about the addition [...]


    23. Hannah becomes besties with Emme next door, and they share almost everything - same birthday, swim team, etc. But then, there seem to be more and more differences, too.


    24. I liked this book. It's about these two girls that both have a birthday on January first, they both like to swim, and both of their names are palindromes. Their names are Emme and Hannah. Emme just moved into Hannah's old best friends house. Hannah is overwhelmed with getting Margo (her "mom") to be officially Hannah's mom, and Margo having a baby, and Emme coming in and moving into her old best friends house, things are kind of crazy for Hannah. But will Emme turn into a new best friend for Han [...]


    25. This was cute and it'll definitely have an audience. There is not a lot of books out there just about friendship or best friendship that aren't a little lame (sorry, it's true). This one is one of those not lame books about friendship and best friendship! Also, Emme has two moms and NOBODY CARES. I love it.
