Clementine is a girl who goes to school with this bossy little girl named Margaret. In the beginning of the story, Margaret went into the bathroom because she got glue in her hair, and she brought along scissors. Then, Clementine went inside to see what was going on. Margaret was crying inside the bathroom because she got glue in her hair. She asked Clementine to cut the part with glue off, but Clementine accidently cut most of her hair off. Then she cried even more, and Clementine got sent to the principal’s office.
Clementine lived in the same apartment building as Margaret. Margaret’s mom got mad at Clementine, and when she went up to say sorry, Margaret’s mom got so mad at her and she said “Go home and think of what you have done!”
The next day, Clementine went to school and got in trouble AGAIN and got sent to the principal’s office AGAIN because she had colored Margaret’s hair red. Margaret wanted it to look like Clementine’s, so Margaret asked Clementine to color her hair with an unwashable marker.
After Clementine went to the principal’s office, she cut her own hair and colored it green because she didn’t want it to look like Margaret’s, because she was mad at Margaret for getting her in trouble.
At the end, she got a big surprise party, and Margaret got her another kitten since Clementine’s kitten had died.
I think this book is very funny. I really like it, it is really like Junie B. Jones because she does funny stuff, like she named her cat Deodorant. I do like Clementine (the girl) because she is crazy, but I don’t like her because she gets in trouble a lot. It makes me feel not very happy because she gets in trouble and doesn’t really pay attention a lot.
I would recommend this book to girls who don’t get in trouble a lot, so they don’t get ideas to do bad stuff. I rate this a 5 out of 10 because I like it and I don’t like it.

Cross Country Clementine shows cardboard Clementines in different states that kids took pictures with, like Oklahoma, Connecticut, and Kansas. I’m going to take a picture with Clementine at Somerset Park and put it on the website.
