Pink & Green is the New Black by Lisa Greenwald


Pink & Green is the New Black by Lisa Greenwald

In the third book in the Pink & Green series, Lucy Desberg starts 8th grade and her make-up and problem-solving skills will be put to the test. Her dad has moved back to town and the sister she adores, Claudia, is taking time off from college -- which means lots of unexpected family drama. And her sort-of boyfriend, Yamir, is starting high school, and Lucy feels like she might not be cool enough to hang out with him. She focuses her attention on the 8th grade masquerade, using her make-up skills to rally her classmates and take her mind off her other issues. But when it comes down to it, will make-up be enough?


Lucy's personality continues 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. --Francisca Goldsmith Booklist (10/01/2014)
