Overview

The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter by Kristen Tracy

From the author of the Project (Un)Popular series and Too Cool For This School, a funny, authentic story about fitting in, growing up, and making it in middle school!

After an unfortunate incident at the hair salon, Bessica is not allowed to see her best friend, Sylvie. That means she's going to start middle school a-l-o-n-e. Bessica feels like such a loser. She wants friends. She's just not sure how to make them.

It doesn't help that her beloved grandma is off on some crazy road trip and has zero time to listen to Bessica. Or that Bessica has a ton of homework. Or that gorgeous Noll Beck thinks she's just a kid. Or that there are some serious psycho-bullies in her classes. Bessica doesn't care about being popular. She just wants to survive—and look cute. Is that too much to ask when you're eleven?

"Funny, goofy, anxious, and absolutely emotionally authentic." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, Starred Review

"Many a middle school girl will find a piece of herself in Bessica Lefter." --VOYA

I love this book soooo much and i know a lot of 10-13 year olds would too. One thing that kind of scared me (since next year im going into middle school) is in this book it gives middle school a bad rep even though i know middle school wont be like this. Yes there will be bullies and bigger kids, but Bessica came totally unprepared and alone since her and Sylvie got separated plus her gma is out exploring caves in the US. She doesnt know anybody else there either. Most schools arent as big as North and South Teton so they dont have to split. What im saying is if you are afraid of what middle school will be like bc of this book, you dont have to worry bc you will most likely not go into middle school totally alone. You DO NOT need to change everything just to fit in. I know many people who did just fine in middle school and they didnt change a thing

Hi. I'm 12 and I love The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter. I did not read it on my nook, but it was still awesome. Exept it did get me more nervous about going to seventh grade in middle school next year. So basically, this book kind of gave middle school a bad reputation. But, it shouldn't be that bad, right? Anyway, The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter is a book l HIGHLY recommend to everyone who is going to face something totally new: middle school.
