Wow! TBF is tomorrow! I hope you are excited as we are about the festival. Guest blogger Carli submitted this review of Lisa Greenwald's My Life in Pink and Green. Happy Reading! - Kim
The book My Life in Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald is a terrific story that teaches the importance of family and maintaining a business. It deals with drama-queens, cute boys, family, money, the environment, girly things, and your average girl who isn’t exactly average. The main character Lucy Desberg works at her family-run pharmacy, Old Mill Pharmacy, with her grandma and her mom. When the business is put in jeopardy due to overdue mortgage payments, and not enough business Lucy takes it on as her duty to save it. She helps a popular (2-time homecoming queen) high school girl, Courtney Adner with a major hair dilemma and suddenly the pharmacy is full of girls desperate for her help, asking for makeovers. Thanks to her older sister Claudia, Lucy has been in love with beauty and make-up since she was little. She puts her great ideas to use to help save the pharmacy. She also is trying to help the environment by using eco-friendly ideas with the help of her mom. Along the way she has to help her best friend Sunny with boy drama, and even deals with some herself. The book is full of beauty tips, business tips, and some great quotes. It is truly an amazing book that every preteen or teenage girl should read.
