After a humiliating tumble down the social ladder, Kacey Simon is back on top, where she belongs. She's lost her lisp, traded in her Coke-bottle glasses for contacts, and learned that brutal honesty isn't always the best policy. Best of all, she's made up with Zander and her BFFs and reclaimed her spot as Gravity's lead singer. Her life is pitch-perfect--until Zander's ex-girlfriend, Stevie, arrives in town.
Marquette Middle hasn't seen a girl with such killer style and impressive vocals since... well, Kacey herself. Boys want to date Stevie, girls want to be her, and Kacey wants to boot her butt out of Chicago ASAP. But when Kacey reverts to her mean-girl ways to take Stevie down, will she lose the band--and Zander--for good?
It's not easy for a star to share the spotlight, but the show must go on in Meg Haston's stylish and clever sequel to How to Rock Braces and Glasses.
Meg Haston survived braces and glasses in middle school; whether she rocked them is debatable. She did go on to rock other things, including but not limited to slap bracelets, a B.S. in Communication Studies from Northwestern University, and an M.Ed. in Professional Counseling from the University of Georgia.
How to Rock Break-Ups and Make-Ups is her second novel in the How to Rock series.
"Mostly reformed mean girl Kacey Simon returns in this preteen drama with a heart...Accessible, funny and ultimately safe: Kacey may make mistakes, but readers can trust that all will turn out right in the end."
"All of the characters are well developed and fun to follow in this fast-paced romantic comedy."
-School Library Journal
Praise for How to Rock Braces and Glasses:
"Embrace the brace! How to Rock Braces and Glasses should be renamed How to Rock Your First Novel. Hilarious and heartfelt. I ah-dored it."
- Lisi Harrison, Author of the #1 bestselling Clique series (and former 4 year braces-wearer and current glasses rocker)
