“Lucy is excited to see work begin on her family's new spa business, and her sister is coming home from college. But all is not as Lucy wants it when her sister brings home an annoying boyfriend and she is pushed out of the new business plans by an outsider. Her 'perfect summer' has been ruined -- or has it? With lots of humor and insight, Greenwald's follow-up to My Life in Pink and Green once again captures life as an early teen, with all of its highs and lows.”

At the end of My Life in Pink & Green
, Lucy Desberg had just won the grant that would save her family's pharmacy--and turn it into a modern eco-spa. Now it's summer, and the work has begun in earnest. Lucy figures that with the spa opening and her sister, Claudia, home, she'll have a great summer. But her sister brings a new boyfriend, and their investor brings his extremely irritating daughter, Bevin. Plus there's a new spa coordinator in charge of the plans, and so Lucy finds herself at loose ends. What's a girl to do? A makeover, of course. But this time Lucy's makeover skills might not smooth over the cracks in her happy family . . . Praise for My Summer of Pink & Green
