A terrific novel about middle school friendship, family, fitting in, and finding out who you are when no one's looking.  Lane Cisco loves, loves, loves her life at Rio Chama Middle School--until her offbeat cousin comes for an extended visit and turns everything upside down. With her individual sense of style and nonconformist attitude, Angelina "Mint" Taraval is everything Lane isn't. And instead of branding her a loser the way Lane and her friends expect, people actually want to hang out with her. Including the boys Lane and her best friend, Ava, like.  When Ava comes up with a plan to ruin Mint, Lane feels stuck. She doesn't want to be mean . . . but she doesn't really want to stick up for her weird cousin either. Why can't things go back to the way they were before Mint arrived?  And don't miss Kristen's other cool books: CAMILLE MCPHEE FELL UNDER THE BUS THE REINVENTION OF BESSICA LEFTER BESSICA LEFTER BITES BACK "Believable and drily funny . . . an empathetic and entertaining read."-- Publishers Weekly    "High drama so compelling middle school readers won't realize they're being exposed to a lesson in ethics. "--Kirkus Reviews   "Snappy, intelligent prose . . . an excellent title." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Kristen Tracy reminds us of our best and worst moments in middle school, handling both the triumphs and the mortifying moments with just the right mix of surprise and worry."
