BEST FRIENDS FOREVER?

Elizabeth and Tara*Starr are totally different. Tara*Starr wears glitter and sequins, loves to be the center of attention, and has two parents who won't grow up. Elizabeth is shy and quiet, hates being the center of attention, and lives in a house where possessions are more important than feelings.

Of course, Elizabeth and Tara*Starr are best friends.

Then Tara*Starr moves away, and the two girls must continue their friendship through letters. At first, this is no problem. But then their lives begin to change -- sometimes for the better, and sometimes for the much worse. Can they stay best friends forever . . . or will the distance tear them apart?

About the author (1999)

Paula Danziger was born in Washington, D.C., on August 18, 1944. She received her Master's Degree in reading and began her career as a teacher. She has taught at the junior high, high school, and college levels. Danziger is best known for a series of children's books about Amber Brown, including Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon, You Can't Eat Your Chicken Pox, Amber Brown, and Amber Brown Wants Extra Credit. Each of these books deals with a "crisis" in the life of young Amber Brown, such as her progressing to fourth grade. Danziger's writing is often inspired by conversations with her niece, Carrie, who is the model for Amber Brown. Other books by Danziger include The Cat Ate My Gymsuit, Remember Me to Harold Square, and Thames Doesn't Rhyme with James. Danziger has become popular in Britain where she was nominated for the British Book Award for Children. She has also received several awards in America: the Parent's Choice Award, an International Reading Association-Children's Book Council Award, and an IRA-CBC Children's Choice Award. Danziger takes time out from writing to host a literary segment on a BBC children's show, called Live and Kicking.

Ann M. Martin, 1955 - Ann Mathews Martin was born on August 12, 1955 in Princeton, New Jersey. She graduated from Smith College and worked as a teacher, was an editor of children's books for both Bantam and Scholastic, and then became a full time writer. Martin is the author of the well-known Baby-sitters Club books. She has also written other children's books, which include the title "Ten Kids, No Pets." She bases her characters, in part, on individuals in her own life; and the shy babysitter Mary Anne, is partially based on herself. She created a new series for middle grade readers called California Diaries, which follows Dawn of The Baby-sitters Club, after she moves to California.
