Enemy Pie is a great book on friendship. It begins as the perfect summer until Jeremy Ross moves into the house down the street and becomes neighborhood enemy number one. His dad has a guaranteed way to get rid of enemies. That is enemy pie, but part of the secret recipe is spending an entire day playing with the enemy! It turns out that they are not enemies after all. This would be a good book to read at the beginning of the school year. Students can create their own pie and fill it with ingredients (ways) to keep a friend or to be a good friend.
