Happily, David Mackintosh’s books are always something to look at, so it’s no surprise that “Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School” takes on friendship from a different angle: the book is narrated by an established insider, forced to be nice to the new guy.

Modern rooms are supposed to be sparse, which is also an advantage because you don’t have to put the room together all at once.
