The Friendship War Book by Andrew Clements
Grace and Ellie have been best friends since second grade. Ellie’s always right in the center of everything–and Grace is usually happy to be Ellie’s sidekick. But what happens when everything changes? This time it’s Grace who suddenly has everyone’s attention when she accidentally starts a new fad at school. A fad that has first her class, then her grade, and then the entire school collecting and trading and even fighting over . . . buttons?! A fad that might get her in major trouble and could even be the end of Grace and Ellie’s friendship.
Andrew Elborn Clements (May 29, 1949 – November 28, 2019) was an American author of children’s literature. His debut novel Frindle won an award determined by the vote of U.S. schoolchildren in about twenty different U.S. states. In June 2015, Frindle was named the Phoenix Award winner for 2016, as it was the best book that did not win a major award when it was published. Clements was born in Camden, New Jersey and lived in nearby Oaklyn and Cherry Hill before moving to Springfield, Illinois as a pre-teen. As a child, he enjoyed summers at a lakeside cabin in Maine where he spent his days swimming, hiking, water skiing, and his evenings reading books. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Northwestern University and a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education from National Louis University, he worked as a teacher sharing his love of reading with elementary, middle, and high school students. He worked for several publishing companies where he published, acquired, edited, marketed, and developed quality children’s books. In 1985, Clements added his own work to the market with a picture book entitled Bird Delbert. His first novel was the award-winning Frindle, which has won sixteen state book awards, as well as the Christopher Award. Clements was married to the former Rebecca Pierpont, and they had three sons. He died at his home in Baldwin, Maine on November 28, 2019, at age 70.
