Review: Fancy Nancy and the Mean Girl (Fancy Nancy)

User Review  - Dana - Goodreads

Worthwhile plot idea, but maybe not enough time to resolve it to my liking. Nancy basically tells off the "mean girl" about making fun of her (Nancy's) lack of running prowess and then they end up friends after they lose the race. Read full review
