The Cybil War

The Cybil War

by Betsy Byars (Viking Children’s, 1981)

Byars_Cybil War

A middle-grade story of first love, and of recognising and dealing with a toxic friendship. Byars grounds her writing with small details and the tragicomic ironies of real life. The result is downhearted yet somehow still easy to read, and ultimately cathartic.
