The Goodbye Time by Celeste Conway

The Goodbye TimeFifth graders Katie and Anna are best friends who are inseparable. They spend every day after school playing a fantasy game that involves talking in English accents and pretending that to be a rock star and his family. Their own real families are as different as night and day.

Anna has a happy family that includes a stylish mother, a friendly father and a genius older brother. Katie’s family includes a busy single mom, a loner older sister and a mentally disabled brother.

As graduation approaches, the girls are excited about parties and dresses. They wonder what it will be like in middle school. They soon discover, though, that middle school won’t be the only change they each must face. Change can certainly be scary, even with an understanding friend by your side – and sometimes an understanding friend isn’t even enough.
