BFFs 1 : Sink or Swim! by Holly Robbins

It's the start of a new school year, but for Ellie Lovewood, it's also the start of a whole new school, too. Even though her BFF, Jasmine, is going to the same school she can't help worrying - she's always been the quiet and shy one whereas Jasmine wouldn't look out of place on the stage! What if Jasmine finds some more exciting friends to hang out with? Argh! Life was so much easier at primary school! Now there are new lessons, new classmates and new boys to get to know...not to mention the ton of homework that's suddenly landed in her lap and the endless new jokes about her surname! It's time to sink or swim!
