Booklist - 05/15/2016 Though she’s excited by the possibility of performing, second-grader Lola Levine’s stage fright earns her a nonspeaking part. Her flamboyant Florida grandmother (Bubbe) flies in to see her, anyhow. It’s a good thing, too, because when things start to go wrong, Bubbe dramatically rescues Lola from an embarrassing costume accident. Lola is an appealing biracial character, who is impulsive and energetic. Her dreams of stardom and the reality of her paralyzing nervousness will be familiar to many readers, as will the feeling of having a slightly annoying little brother. Episodic first-person chapters bring in Dolores Huerta’s campaign for farm workers, the folly of making fun of someone’s name, and the sad result of blowing too-big chewing gum bubbles. Gray-scale drawings support the text, except when brother Ben, described as pony-tailed like his father, is shown with a tightly curled mop. Readers who met first Lola in Lola Levine Is Not Mean (2015) will be pleased to see her in a new role. This sequel should win her new fans. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
