The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter by Kristen Tracy

Bessica is feeling adventurous at the hair salon. She's going into sixth grade and wants a new hair style.  Unfortunately Sylvie's Mom is not impressed when Sylvie gets the same style...

Delacourte Press Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book for review.  It's currently available at your local bookstore and is written for ages 10 and up.

Bessica thought a pixie cut was a good idea, but she sure didn't expect to start middle school A-L-O-N-E!  Sylvie doesn't seem as upset about it as she is and that makes it worse.  She knows no one at the new school.  And now her grandmother is going on a road trip and won't even be there to help her adjust...

This is a story about growing up and learning how to fight your own battles.  It's done in a non-threatening, fun way and your middle schooler ought to recognize the challenges and relate to Bessica's problems.

Why not share a copy of this book with a child who is in middle school?

Happy reading!
