Title- Queen of the Sixth Grade Author- Ilene Cooper The major character in the story I read was a girl named Robin. Robin is confident, sweet, caring, a good friend, respectful, and a little shy. Robin was the best friend of the most popular girl in school named Veronica. Robin had a crush on a boy named Jonathan. Veronica and Robin made up a club and only allowed certain girls in it.
It was called the AKG S which means Awesome Kennedy Girls. They even made up pins with the lettering akg's on them. For their first party Veronica was going to have a Halloween party and invite boys. Veronica asked Robin to see if Jonathan liked her because Veronica wanted to go with him to the party and she didn t know that Robin had a crush on him. So when Robin told Jonathan that there was a girl that wanted to go with him, he thought that Robin was asking him to be her date. So Jonathan said Okay Robin I ll be your date Robin said okay because she really wanted to go with him anyway.
The next day in school Robin told Veronica that Jonathan asked her to be his date. They got into a fight and Robin gave up her pin and got kicked out of the club. Then no girl would ever speak a word to her because Veronica told them all not to. Robin was miserable the few weeks without any friends.
She wasn t invited to the party. So Robin and her mom signed her up for an acting class. She knew a boy who went there and he is in commercials and other T.V. Public announcements now. So she met a girl there who was from her school and they became friends. Robin got picked for a commercial and soon girls started talking to her. Robin got happier and happier each day.
Then one day the girls from the AKG club (Except Veronica) came up to her an asked her if she wanted to start a new club without Veronica. Robin was shocked. The club had been ruined without her!! Robin told them she ll think about it.
Later on Veronica came up to her and said she was sorry and wanted to be friends again. She said she ll do anything to be friends again. Robin was so excited! She tried to think of something that would be's embarrassing. But then she decided now Robin was popular and that she wanted to be a sweet, caring, good friend unlike Veronica was! !
