Forget social studies, math, and science -- this hilarious novel is about surviving some of the real problems tween girls face in the sixth grade. Honest and heartwarming, the story follows eleven-year-old Becky Lennox over the course of the school year as she figures out how to survive friendships, first crushes, embarrassing parents and annoying older brothers.

This award-wnning novel from emerging author Catherine Austen is a sure-fire hit for tween girls.

"Delightful and spot on for the middle grade experience...what a fun choice for a mother daughter book club. Laugh out loud funny and great opportunities for moms to share their own sixth grade experiences as they flood back after reading this."

"The page design is appealing, with great doodles on almost every page..."

- Nicole Rowlinson Resource Links

"Becky a character that readers will love right from the hilarious opening paragraph. I love the message the story delivered: if you have a sense of humour, an annoying family, and an open heart, you already have everything you need to survive."

- Jury Citation, QWF Childrens and YA Literature Prize

"...a simply told yet fast-paced and colourful blend of humour and drama...well-rounded, credible characters. This book will certainly appeal to female readers. Highly Recommended."

- Karen Rankin CM: Canadian Review of Materials

CATHERINE AUSTEN's first novel for children was nominated for the Canadian Library Association Book of the Year for Children Award, the Quebec Writer's Federation Prize, and the Manitoba Young Reader's Award. Catherine lives with her family in Gatineau, Quebec.
