Twelve-year-old Lucy Desberg is a natural problem-solver. At her family's struggling pharmacy, she has a line of makeover customers for every school dance and bat mitzvah. But all the makeup tips in the world won t help save the business. If only she could find a way to make it the center of town again a place where people want to spend time, like in the old days. Lucy dreams up a solution that could resuscitate the family business and help the environment, too. But will Lucy's family stop fighting long enough to listen to a seventh-grader? In a starred review, "Kirkus "said this novel successfully delivers an authentic and endearing portrait of the not-quite-teen experience, and "Booklist "called it a warm, uplifting debut. Readers everywhere have responded to Lucy's independence and initiative not to mention her great style.
