Two Alexandrias! Alex (short for Alexandria) expects to make new friends when she joins the swim team - but she doesn't count on meeting another Alexandria! How can she make friends with Alexandra, who pushes her into the pool for no reason? Alex knows she should forgive Alexandria, but that seems impossible.
The worst possible partner! That's who Alex gets for the biggest project of the school year. She won't have a chance at first place if she has to work with Eric Linden. He's the slowest kid in third grade. Alex can't understand why he has to be her partner. Is she supposed to share God's love with Eric? Could that be more important than winning first place? Every kid gets into the predicaments that Alex does - ones that start out small and mushroom. Readers will learn from Alex's mistakes and understand that they have the same sources of help that she turns to: a God who loves them and parents who understand. You'll want to read all the books about Alex and her friends and family. Nancy Simpson, who shares Alex's love of sports, lives in Texas.
After spending her school lunch money at a carnival and trying to hide the fact that she is skipping lunch every day. Alex decides that disobeying her parents causes too many problems.
