A SUMMER READ FOR GIRLS
Three weeks into her summer job and on her way to her dream career of owning and operating a hair salon based on the hairstyles of great heroines of literature, Irene is fired. Irene gets a new job babysitting (the only job she can get) two kids for the summer. While babysitting the kids she meets Starla and is intrigued by her hair, her beauty, her obsession with her ex-boyfriend, and her “fabulous” blog. She quickly discovers that beauty has a dark side.
Middle schoolers needing a little drama in their reading will want to read My Almost Epic Summer by Adele Griffin this summer.
