Twelve-year-old Lizbeth always has a plan, and those plans have usually worked--until now. No matter what she tries, she can't get rid of her dad's new girlfriend, Claire. And when she and her mom move, Lizbeth has to join a sixth-grade class already in progress, where her teacher makes her wear a name tag and she's seated with three notorious weirdos.


This was a book about learning about yourself, even when you think you know yourself well. It is a realistic fiction middle grade read that will have you trying to help Lizbeth and her new situation in life. There are some great hidden gems of quotes throughout this book that I thoroughly appreciated.

Being a person who doesn't always get the laughs that I think I should, I totally got Lizbeth and wanted her to learn about friendship and family and differences and all the things!

Finding your way in a group, be it a family or friends is always hard for anyone, but especially those in the 6th grade. Highly recommend this book for all middle graders and anyone else who wants a feel good story!

Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the review copy!
