    I saw this series pop up on Goodreads, and also Twitter, quite a few times, so I decided to check it out. Boy, I am glad I did, because this book made me laugh so much. This book was hilarious, our MC is just fantastic (well not always, but often she is), the friendship and whom she friended, well I could see that coming from a mile away (especially after some parts). The parents were so-so. They had good intentions, but sorry, just because you have a baby doesn't mean you can just ignore and act I saw this series pop up on Goodreads, and also Twitter, quite a few times, so I decided to check it out.

This book was hilarious, our MC is just fantastic (well not always, but often she is), the friendship and whom she friended, well I could see that coming from a mile away (especially after some parts). The parents were so-so. They had good intentions, but sorry, just because you have a baby doesn't mean you can just ignore and act so meh around your other kid. You got 2 kids now, take care of them both. Do your laundry (so she has clean clothes), make sure there is food, listen to the kid if she wants to talk, etc.. Bella (our MC's best friend) was really funny, and I loved how she adapted quickly to her new life in Wales. In the beginning I was a bit annoyed with our MC and how she treated people. I know she wants friends (and also a partner for the trip), but come on girl, no need to act like this. I don't even see what was so good about that new girl. But then again I can imagine that one might not want to be the partner with a gross boy who apparently isn't so nice. As the story continues I started to really like the girl and I could see that her life also wasn't the easiest. Worried about her parents (and also angry for not giving her attention and even making some bad remarks), her best friend moved to Wales, there is a new girl in her class, another friend did something (but we later find out more about that and also what really happened). So yeah, I could imagine that she might be acting a bit off. Anyone would. Plus the fact that this girl is 11 years old. I laughed out loud about several things, from the part where she had to go into Gross-Out's van. Or the part near the end with the whole trip and what happened there (poor Emily, poor Zuzanna). And then there were countless of other parts that had me in stitches. My book at the moment is a bit stuffed with papers so I can remember what parts were exceptionally funny. I loved the way this book was written as a diary (and also the little comments when the day just seemed to go on). The ending had me laughing, oh dear, I do hope those parents never find out who Bella's best friend really is. :D All in all, even with a bumpy first beginning, I loved the book and I am definitely going to check out the other books.

Emily Sparkes has lost her best friend to Wales and now faces being partnered with the grossest boy in the class for an upcoming school trip. Luckily for her, a new girl arrives and Emily is determined to impress her so she has someone to be with during the school trip. When Emily finds herself locked in a battle of wills to win over Chloe, the new girl in class, she fears the worst – being partnered with Gross-Out Gavin for the Tudor school trip. Chloe seems like a nice girl but she’s full of fanciful stories about her rich family and their new things, as well as mocking Emily for her ‘babyish’ ways. Even though Chloe isn’t exactly the new best friend she had hoped for, Emily still tries her hardest to win her over, because the alternative is too awful to think about. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick, easy read as it’s aimed at a younger audience but I still found it funny and entertaining. Poor Emily just wants to have a new best friend so she won’t be so alone anymore after her friend has moved away and her all her prayers seem to be answered when Chloe arrives on the scene. But Chloe was a proper little miss who acted better than the other girls and I felt really bad for Emily, who was trying so hard to impress her. I think this is a great book that teaches young kids to just be themselves instead of trying to change to impress someone. True friends are better than false friends, as Emily found out, and I’m glad that things worked out well in the end. I’m looking forward to reading the next adventure for Emily.

She bubbles with witty observations on her friends, her family and teachers, and muddles along in her day-to-day quest to survive school, friendships and parental issues. Emily’s life is not out of the ordinary; she goes to school every day, her parents have just had a new baby, and she worries about schoolwork, friendships and being stuck on the bus with Gross-out Gavin. She is an easily identifiable character, with a clear compass for right and wrong and perceived ills, which stands her in good stead with all those around her. What I find really refreshing about Emily is that she seems to be a ‘middling child’. She’s not bullied, nor a bully, not the most popular nor the least, not the most academic and not the least – the sort of child whom parents feel often gets ignored. In this, Ruth Fitzgerald proves that the ‘unnoticeable’ should be noticed, as Emily’s wit sparkles in every circumstance in which she finds herself. I particularly liked her astute observations on her parents, and I appreciated the cute illustrations – which make it seem as if Emily has decorated her own book with doodles, drawings and stickers. The Friendship Fiasco starts with Emily’s best friend leaving and relocating with her family, and a new girl starting at school, with whom Emily desperately wants to make friends. All is not quite as it seems with new girl Chloe though, and after some misunderstandings are dealt with, Emily realises that maybe her new best friend has been in the classroom all along. A great new character, with some laugh-out-loud scenes. Check out my site for other friends books http://www.minervareads.com/?p=473

    Absolutely Super! This is the debut novel from Ruth Fitzgerald and the first in the 'Emily Sparkes' series. It's a wonderfully warm and funny story of families,friendships and new arrivals. Without giving any spoilers and in a nutshell; Emily Sparkes is facing more than one crisis with a new and as yet nameless baby sister; her Mum's 'baby blues', her best friend's emigration to Wales to make goat's cheese, how to avoid being Gross-out Gavin's Tudor Times - Time Travel Trip partner and the sudden Absolutely Super!

Without giving any spoilers and in a nutshell; Emily Sparkes is facing more than one crisis with a new and as yet nameless baby sister; her Mum's 'baby blues', her best friend's emigration to Wales to make goat's cheese, how to avoid being Gross-out Gavin's Tudor Times - Time Travel Trip partner and the sudden arrival of the sparkly tight wearing new kid on the school block and everybody's new best friend, Chloe Clarke! Fitzgerald's observations of the realities of everyday family life are brilliantly perceived through the eyes of her main character Emily Sparkes. Written with great humour, there are many laugh out loud moments, the story keeps a good pace and leaves you wanting more! Fortunately there are a further three adventures waiting in the wings and I for one can't wait to step back into Emily's world.
