A huge music festival coming to town, and Annabelle and her friends can't wait to rock out . . . that is if they can come up with enough cash to buy the expensive tickets. In this day and age, a regular old lemonade stand isn't going to cut it. They'll need to get creative, but agreeing on a strategy is harder than Annabelle thought, especially when her best friend, Rachel, has strong opinions that threaten not just their business model, but their friendship as well. With big plans-and big changes-afoot, this year will be one to remember.
Capturing the ups and downs of friendship, family, and middle school in her pitch perfect writing, Leslie Margolis keeps readers coming back for more of life according to Annabelle Stevens.
