Publisher Description

My name is Christy byt nobody calls me that. I'm in the same class with another girls named Christie, so I've become just the other Christy, the spare Christy. Not the popular, loud one everyone likes. Just once I'd like to be noticed, and have a real friend. Someone I can bake treats for and who just gets me ...and my weird fussy Grandpa at home. Could that person ever really be Christie? Could I be friends with my enemy? The Other Christy is a touching and funny tale from the ever-popular Oliver Phommavanh about quirky families, sweet desserts and two girls who find out they have a lot more in common than just their name.
