The sequel to Shirlee Smith Matheson’s critically acclaimed Prairie Pictures follows the main character, Sherri, as she is uprooted once again and forced to adjust to life in the city and get ready to start at yet another new school. Sherri is thrilled to instantly make a new friend in Sam, the girl next door. A year older than Sherri, Sam is happy to show Sherri how to dress and behave. Eager to fit in, Sherri follows Sam’s lead until she discovers that appearances can be deceiving. Sometimes, it is hard to tell what is genuine from what is phony.
