Summary

Summary

Lucy Desberg is in eighth grade, and she's determined to make this year perfect. Over the course of the year, though, her talents for makeup and problem-solving will be put to the test. On the outside, things couldn't be better: her family's spa is doing well, and she has a boyfriend, Yamir. But Yamir's in high school now, and Lucy's too embarrassed to admit that he hasn't called her in weeks. To take her mind off him, she throws herself into planning the eighth-grade masquerade, using her makeup skills to rally her classmates. But as she soon learns, ignoring a problem does not make it go away. It's destined to pop up at the worst possible time. Lucy's resourcefulness will be put to the test as she grows up and starts making decisions about the type of person--and girlfriend and friend and daughter and sister--that she wants to be.

Booklist Review

Eighth-grader Lucy is back and doing her best to balance her efforts to understand her maybe-boyfriend's mixed messages, her classmates' needs to be part of the teenage social whirl, and her family members' realistic dynamics. Along the way to convincing her middle-school cafeteria to go green and getting her best friend to communicate honestly with her, Lucy figures out how to promote the family's beauty spa as part of making the eighth-grade masquerade a success. Lucy's adventures continue to offer peer readers emotional wisdom tied to credible examples of the ties that bind, bend, and reconnect as kids move from early to middle adolescence.--Goldsmith, Francisca Copyright 2014 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-6-Now in eighth grade, Lucy Desberg, who turned her family's pharmacy into an eco-friendly spa earlier in the series, has plenty on her mind: dating, dances, and boys. Infused with beauty and makeup references and peppered with "Lucy's [tips] for surviving eighth grade," Greenwald's latest has an intimate, "girl to girl" feel that will resonate with those on the verge of teen (and tween)hood.
