"One True Friend" is a good addition to the 163rd St. series and an enjoyable continuation of the friendship between Doris and Amir, which began in "The Gift Giver" and continued in "Yellow Bird and Me." However, there are some inconsistencies in plot and characterization between this book and its predecessors. Most are minor, but one glaring and unsettling inconsistency is that the close friendship between Doris and Yellow Bird, which developed in "Yellow Bird and Me" seems to be forgotten. This is troubling and inexplicable to me, since that friendship was at the heart and soul of "Yellow Bird and Me" and should have continued into the next book in the series.
