Imitation is apparently the highest form of flattery, but it can also be very annoying. Aleah Jean who goes by the name, A.J., is having problems with a copy-catter called Brooklyn. The problem started at the beginning of third grade. Brooklyn copies everything A.J. says, does, and wears. A.J. just wants to be herself, unique and different from all the other girls in her class. Why can’t Brooklyn be herself, too? When Brooklyn invites A.J. and her best friend, Ashley, to her birthday party, A.J.’s not sure she wants to go. But she and Ashley had formed their Double Detectives Spy Agency to discover what’s Brooklyn’s real motive. What better place to learn and understand Brooklyn than at her very own birthday party? The girls are about to learn something very important, not just about Brooklyn, but also about themselves and what it means to be a good friend.
Kimberly Waldren and Kaylah Walker's early reader, A.J. and the Annoying Copy-Catter, is an easy-to-read chapter book to entice young readers to further their reading skills. The plot follows A.J. and her friend Ashley as they sleuth their classmates and follow Brooklyn to find out what makes her so intent on copying A.J. The story is told in simple language, with large print and short chapters and lots of dialogue to make the reading easy for youngsters. There are clever drawings to add depth to the story and encourage the reader to continue with the story. There are hidden messages to bolster youngsters in their own social skills, particularly about friendships. An engaging and educational story.
