“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.” – Margaret Fuller
Every month check out our featured book that will inspire conversation between you and your daughter. This month we are featuring Face 2 Face by tween author, Caroline Ster.
Face 2 Face is about Alice Smith, a normal seventh grade girl with a big problem: Brenda Johnson. Brenda and her sidekicks- Tess and Taylor- have made school a miserable place for Alice. Whether it’s nasty teasing of full blown attacks, Alice lives in a state of constant humiliation. She dreads going to school, has many sleepless nights and, try as she might, Alice just can’t seem to escape being the target of Brenda’s aggression. But when Miss Krissa announces try-outs for the school’s spring show, Alice is overjoyed. That is of course, until Brenda gets involved.
Join Alice as she navigates through the terrain of homework, bullying and early adolescence. And maybe- with a little help from friends, teachers, and parents- she can come out the other side.
