The "good" girl

Cassidy has let her parents, her strong-willed cousin and best friend, Rikki, and cruel classmates push her around long enough. Before school starts, she WILL become independent.

The "bad" girl

Rikki also wants independence, mostly from her preacher father and perfect older sister. But secretly she doesn't mind having her goody-goody cousin around to keep her in line. Without Cassidy, it would be easy to go too far.

The "new" girl

Golden is new to town, and she's got all the freedom she wants. What she needs is a parent to actually listen to her. But at least she has some new friends to help her deal.

For all three girls, life is changing fast. If they're going to make it to seventh grade, they'd better summon their inner divas -- because sometimes having a little attitude and a little respect for yourself is the only way to get what you want.

In Little Divas, Philana Marie Boles delivers a sassy, spirited tale of loyalty, family, and friendship.
