Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
In this third book in the "Lucy B. Parker" series, seventh grader, Lucy, is talked into running for class president by her friends and her teen superstar step-sister, Laurel Moses. Lucy is reluctant because she is running against the most popular and meanest girl in the school, Christina Pollock. When her frister (friend + sister), Laurel, begins to run the campaign, Lucy gets upset. She wants to win on her own merits and not because she has a superstar step-sister. This leads to an argument between the girls. While the campaign progresses, Lucy's father and his new wife are expecting a baby, and Lucy has mixed feelings about becoming a big sister. There are no surprises in the conclusion, as the book culminates in the election results and the birth of Lucy's little brother. Written exclusively for "tween" girls, the book has a "chick lit" voice that will be unappealing for all other readers. Chapters begin with rambling letters from Lucy B. to a fictional advice columnist, Dr. Maude. Themes of friendship, acceptance and forgiveness are watered down by stereotypical characters and an obvious plot progression. Reviewer: Jody Little

Meet the Author

Robin Palmer grew up in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and graduated from Boston University before she hit the road for Hollywood. Starting as an assistant in the television literary department of the William Morris Agency, she quickly moved up the ranks and spent the next decade as a literary agent, producer, and television network executive at Lifetime Television, where she developed over one hundred scripts and oversaw the production of over thirty of the cable network's original movies. In 2001, she remembered that she had originally intended to spend her life either as a writer or a toll booth collector (so she could indulge her penchant for spending her days alone reading), but as there are no toll roads in southern California, she decided to give the writing thing a try. Since then, she's written everything from screenplays to essays to a novel to a preschool guide. Although she's constantly threatening to move, she currently resides in New York City.
