Fitting Out: The Friendship Experiment by Sarah Giles is an entertaining book for children on how to make friends. Meet Max McConk who will share his friendship experiment with young readers. Max goes from a solo act to someone who is able to find friends everywhere. His brother calls him a real nerd. Max's best friend Miguel has moved away and he is trying to figure out how to be long-distance friends with him now. Max wants to make new friends before school reopens and he has only a month to do it. Will Max be able to do it? How does he do it? Who are the three new friends he makes on the first day of school? Let us read on to discover the Max experience.

Fitting Out is a fun read with its scientific methods and friendship experiment, and author Sarah Giles' approach to the topic of making new friends is unique and refreshing. Her way of writing, the illustrations, and the formatting make the book captivating and appealing to children. The book is engaging and interactive and it pulls readers in to participate with Max. For all those children who are shy and have difficulties when it comes to making new friends, this book is a good guide. The glossary at the end is helpful to youngsters. The book will help readers realize that just because they don't fit in right away means they will fit with people who like to do their own thing, though it makes them different.
