The continuing saga that began with Rockett’s New School and Rockett’s Tricky Decision, continues in like manner with this latest installment, Rockett’s Secret Invitation.
The school year is progressing, as are Rockett’s relationships with new friends (and potential foes). Still seeking to break free of her 'new girl' persona, Rockett struggles with the daily decisions of life at Whistling Pines Jr. High. School work and home are seemingly stable for the artistic 8th grader, whose major dilemma seems to be choosing with whom to align herself. Should she seek precarious popularity with the 'in-crowd,' join the secret club currently extending a dubious invitation, or pursue the comfortable kind of friendship she experienced with best friend Meg at her previous school?
As with other titles in this series, the user chooses the manner in which the story unfolds. Character personalities are revealed via exploration of student lockers and their contents. What are Rockett’s new acquaintances really feeling and with whom are they communicating? A peek at their personal journals can provide answers, or raise new, increasingly mysterious questions. In this case, snooping is a must.
Parent reviewers noted that the subject material is perfect for girls in the targeted age range. Whistling Pines comrades behave age-appropriately and are neither excessively precocious nor unrealistically immature.
