Lisa Greenwald’s My Life in Pink & Green is the first book in a series that “successfully delivers an authentic and endearing portrait of the not-quite-teen experience” (Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review). Twelve-year-old Lucy Desberg is a natural problem-solver. At her family’s struggling pharmacy, she has a line of makeover customers for every school dance and bat mitzvah. But all the makeup tips in the world won’t help save the business. If only she could find a way to make it the center of town again—a place where people want to spend time, like in the old days.

In this “warm, uplifting debut” (Booklist), readers everywhere have responded to Lucy’s independence and initiative—not to mention her great style.
