My Summer of Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald
Genre: YA Realistic Fiction
But things aren't perfect for long. Lucy's sister and her best friend would rather hang out with their boyfriends than with Lucy — leaving her with the spa investor's extremely irritating daughter. Plus there's a new coordinator in charge of the renovations, who pushes her gently but firmly aside. Even with all the changes the family's going through, no one seems to want Lucy's problem-solving expertise.
What's a girl to do? It's time for another Lucy Desberg makeover. But this time, it's a life makeover.
MY OPINION: *****
This was yet another extremely good read by Lisa Greenwald (and more are yet to come!).
I loved reading about Lucy Desberg's adventures again. Although this book was not as good as the first one in my opinion, I think that it still was a pretty good book, and an enjoyable read. It was definitely another page-turner, and it was really hard to put down.
I like how this book deals with "grown-up problems", but also general middle-school problems. Lucy is now in seventh grade, and it seems as if everything changes then. I also like how Lucy learns to deal with her problems; and also fix her mistakes.
I also liked to read about how she deals with problems about her best friend, her "almost-boyfriend", and just basic school life, such as new friends and old enemies.
This book was definitely one of my favorites by Lisa Greenwald. I would recommend it to middle-schoolers, since the characters are all mostly in middle-school.

Realistic Fiction Elements: All of this could happen in real life, though it most likely never will.
