Overview

A music festival is coming to town, and Annabelle and her friends can't wait to rock out--that is if they can earn 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, there's no time for Annabelle and crew to monkey around!

Capturing the ups and downs of friendship, family, and middle school in her pitch perfect storytelling, Leslie Margolis keeps readers coming back for more of life according to Annabelle Stevens.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Almost twelve-year-old Annabelle may have moved to a new house and neighborhood, but she’s still the same person she’s always been. At least she thinks she is, but her best friend Rachel seems to think otherwise. Rachel is constantly making digs and hurtful comments about Annabelle’s new house, her bedroom, her clothes, and anything else that looks like it cost a lot of money. Worst of all, Rachel’s attitude threatens to break apart their circle of friends, making it difficult for them to find a way to earn money to attend the music concert that summer. The latest title in Margolis’ “Annabelle Unleashed” series is chock-full of popular culture references from iPhones to Taylor Swift. Annabelle is an enthusiastic, slightly self-centered tween who is ready to leap head first into teenage culture. Though Annabelle does not grow much as a character here, she does learn how to build communication and understanding within her social network, a valuable skill for anyone, but especially the community of preteen girls that Margolis so adeptly captures. Fans of the series will be eager to get their hands on this latest installment. Reviewer: Heather Christensen; Ages 9 to 12.
