Jada Jones Rock Star by Kelly Starling Lyons

A perfect addition to your collection of beginning chapter titles, Jada Jones:  Rock Star is the story of a spunky, African-American fourth-grader who is starting a new school year without her best friend who moved away over the summer.  NC author Kelly Starling Lyons has created a character every elementary grade girl can relate to, with experiences common to all.  Avoiding the sassy talk of some series, Jada has a supportive family and school environment that help her work through challenges such as making friends and keeping them while remaining true to herself.  This is one of the very best series for second and third graders to come out in quite a while so don't miss it at your Bedford Falls book fair!
