Lucy Rose: Here's the Thing About Me by Katy Kelly, Adam Rex

I’m Lucy Rose and here’s the thing about me: I am eight and according to my grandfather I have the kind of life that is called eventful, which means NOT boring. According to my mom and my grandmother I’m what they call a handful. And according to my dad I am one smart cookie.

I say I am one girl who is feeling not-so-sure about things on account of my parents got a separation. Plus my mom and I just moved to Washington, D.C. Plus I haven’t met any friends yet but I do know someone who is not one and that is Adam Melon, who I call Melonhead.

Here’s another thing about me: most of the time I am plain hilarious.

First-time author Katy Kelly introduces us to an original thinker who’s got a lot on her mind and she’s ready to share (minus the boring parts, of course). Lucy Rose is an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind girl with spark, spunk, and one great pair of cowgirl boots! (No kidding!)

My mom reads my books before me so as to determine whether they are "appropriate." While she was reading this one, though, she informed me every few minutes how funny Lucy Rose is and laughed practically every paragraph. I am now reading it and I,as usual, agree with her one hundred percent. The only thing is that Lucy Rose seems WAY older than eight. Mom agrees and she should know. She is a mom after all.

Lucy Rose is a book about a little girl whose dad is split away from her. She first comes to her new school. Then she meets a girl named Jonique. But there is one person in her class that she really doesn¿t like Adam Melon. He likes to be mean to Lucy a lot, that¿s probably why he might like her. Lucy¿s lessons are not to lie and make an enemy into a friend. The only way that she had to make an enemy into a friend is to get Adam¿s help. Also the only way to learn a very important lesson was that she lied and then tell the truth. Her most important friendship was with Jonique. This is one of the best book I have ever read. Take my advise and read it. I think it is so good, because it¿s funny and mysterious. That¿s why you should read this book.

Here's the thing about Lucy Rose Reilly: She moves to a new town and starts third grade at a new school. She makes a friend and also an enemy. She struggles to deal with her parents' separation. She is obsessed with palindromes. There are also a big lie and a guinea pig, though the two are not related. Watch as Lucy Rose keeps it all together by recording her thoughts (only the interesting parts, mind you) in her new red journal. *** To those who love Junie B., Lucy Reilly has the same sort of voice and shenanigans (without being a rip-off), but since she is older, she also has some weightier issues (the aforementioned enemy, the lie, and her parents' separation.) Full of wit, Lucy's story is one both boys and girls will enjoy.
