School Library Journal - 10/01/2014 Gr 4–6—Now in eighth grade, Lucy Desberg, who turned her family's pharmacy into an eco-friendly spa earlier in the series, has plenty on her mind: dating, dances, and boys. Infused with beauty and makeup references and peppered with "Lucy's [tips] for surviving eighth grade," Greenwald's latest has an intimate, "girl to girl" feel that will resonate with those on the verge of teen (and tween)hood. - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
Booklist - 10/01/2014 Eighth-grader Lucy is back and doing her best to balance her efforts to understand her maybe-boyfriend’s mixed messages, her classmates’ needs to be part of the teenage social whirl, and her family members’ realistic dynamics. Along the way to convincing her middle-school cafeteria to go green and getting her best friend to communicate honestly with her, Lucy figures out how to promote the family’s beauty spa as part of making the eighth-grade masquerade a success. Lucy’s adventures continue to offer peer readers emotional wisdom tied to credible examples of the ties that bind, bend, and reconnect as kids move from early to middle adolescence. - Copyright 2014 Booklist.
