Even better than book 1. Peer Pressure is Real!
Reviewed in the United States on February 29, 2020
*I would suggest any parents contemplating divorce for any reason short of infidelity read the series, and think about their children.
In Book Two, Return to Twilight, things get more serious. It's 7th Grade now. Lorna's issues with her absent father wreak havoc on her life. Here we delve into peer pressure and have a host of springboards to talk about exactly what makes a true friend, vs a false friend / bad influence.
Sam steps up in this story. His gratitude for Lorna's actions in the first book makes him willing to at least try to help her. Reluctantly, he pushes through some major (mental) peer pressure and tries to be there for his one-time friend.
I would suggest reading WITH your middle schooler, and discussing what happens as you go.
