Alfie Jakes is starting second grade in the follow-up to Alfie Jakes and the Furry, Purry Secret, perfect for fans of the Judy Moody books! 

Alfie Jakes's summer was better than she expected. Even though her best friend Lulu was away on vacation, she found a new friend in her next door neighbor, Hanni. Hanni even let her take home a kitten! Now that second grade is about to start and Lulu is back in town, Alfie is worried. All she wants is for her trio to be first week friends, but what if Lulu and Hanni don't get along? Her secret first week, second grade wish is for them to become friends. What if Alfie's wish comes true--but with a twist she didn't see coming??
