Mary Amato: News From Me, Lucy McGee

When the coolest girl in the class invites you to her exclusive after-school club, how can you say no? 

Even if it means skipping out on Songwriting Club? Even if she's always been too popular to give you the time of day? Even if she asks you to paint the walls and serve the tea...?

Soon Lucy McGee realizes she's been tricked into becoming mean girl Scarlett Tandy's errand girl--and she's getting in trouble for skipping her after-school activities. Things get complicated as she tries to balance school, friends, frenemies, songwriting, and family expectations. Clearly Lucy has to strike back! But it turns out that singing and playing your ukulele--and having loads of fun doing it--are the best revenge.

In this new series from state-award favorite Mary Amato, a spunky heroine matches wits with a mean girl and learns that middle can be a balancing act--so you can't lose sight of what's important.

This heavily-illustrated chapter book features a durable paper-over-board cover, three of Lucy's songs, and a sneak peek of Book Two, Sing With Me, Lucy McGee!
