Overview

Everyone thinks it’s a great idea for Lucy B. Parker to run for class president, but Lucy’s not so sure. Even though her frister (that’s friend + sister), teen superstar Laurel Moses, could campaign for her, Lucy wants to win as Lucy, not as Laurel-Moses’s-less-pretty-less-talented stepsister. To make matters worse, Lucy’s dad and his girlfriend are having a baby — and the baby shower is the same week as the election! How is Lucy going to manage her famous frister, a soon-to-be baby, and the campaign of the year all at once?

“There is nothing average about Lucy. Fans of
Meg Cabot’s work will enjoy watching Lucy.” — Booklist, on Yours Truly, Lucy B. Parker: Girl vs. Superstar

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - Audio
Gr 4–8—Lucy B. Parker is back, and in Palmer's third book (Putnam, 2011) of the series she has her usual share of drama and social dilemmas. Every part of her life seems to add to her stress and distress. Her incredibly famous and talented "frister" (friend + stepsister), Laurel, has talked her into running for class president against the malicious but most popular girl in school. Lucy's platform and reason for running is to abolish the unfair treatment of "have-nots" by "haves," and to stop dork discrimination. She wants to win on her own, though, without the help or interference of Laurel, which causes a big falling-out between them. Meanwhile, her father's girlfriend back home is close to giving birth, and she and Lucy's father insist that Lucy assume a larger role in baby Ziggy's life, even if it conflicts with the election. Lucy is a likable seventh grader who has a few dork moments of her own throughout the campaign. References to the previous titles in the series are explained sufficiently so that this book can stand on its own. Each character is given a unique and appropriate voice by Shana Dowdswell. Lucy comes across as a typical tween, voicing anxiety and frustration at the usual problems that middle schoolers encounter, experimenting with crushes, balancing family and social life, and learning to stand up for herself. Tweens will identify with Lucy and enjoy this installment.—MaryAnn Karre, School West Middle School, Binghamton, NY
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.

Please vote for me. I want to be deputy because I love organizing patrols. I will be a better deputy because I am active. I am on a lot and will set two guards at the camp entrance until dawn and then they can get some sleep. At dawn we will have a clan meeting and I will organize hunting patrols and border patrols. I will set up a map so you would know where to go instead of having to ask me, where do I go? Please join the clan too..we need active warriors and will definately have to have a lot more cats if I get picked as deputy! Please vote.....thank you! Jaysparkle.
