Keyana Loves Her Friend (Keyana, 2)

We rated this book:


A year ago, Keyana’s best friend, Nia, moved away. Now, Nia is returning to visit, and they are going to have the greatest sleepover ever. Keyana, who is a powerhouse of personality, begins planning all of their activities before Nia arrives, but Nia has ideas of her own. Some of those ideas stem from their time apart. Keyana’s father tries to tell Keyana that she may discover new things she likes to do, but that’s not what Keyana wants to hear.

After Nia’s arrival, the sleepover goes less than smoothly, with Nia saying she’s ready to go home. Keyana finally admits she afraid that Nia will forget the things they like to do and Keyana. Nia says she could never forget her best friend, and they come up with new sleepover activities, creating the most spectacular sleepover ever.

This book, the second in the Keyana series, gently teaches important lessons about friendship and how to navigate the changes that can occur with distance and time. Given Keyana’s bigger-than-life personality, don’t be surprised when little readers may request more stories with Keyana.
