When the coolest girl in the class invites you to her exclusive after-school club, how can you say no? Soon Lucy McGee realizes she’s been tricked into becoming mean girl Scarlett Tandy’s errand girl. Things get complicated as she tries to balance school, friends, frenemies, songwriting and family expectations. News from Me, Lucy McGee by Mary Amato and illustrated by Jessica Meserve, is a new chapter book series featuring a spunky heroine who matches wits with a mean girl and learns you can’t lose sight of what’s important.
“The book can be a great springboard for discussions on many basic concerns for all kids: friendship, honesty and keeping commitments.”
“This book is excellent…we’re excited for the series…the black-and-white line drawings complement the text and make it welcoming.”
“Poor Lucy is having lots of trouble as she tries to navigate making a friend while the friend is, unfortunately, just using her. Every child wants to fit in and have friends and sometimes the friends they select aren’t the best for them. Lucy is definitely learning this lesson.”
