I’m Lucy Rose, and here’s the thing about this summer: I am big on fun and big on plans. I am desperate to make a lanyard keychain, and Jonique is feeling the same about potholders. Plus I have to get rid of 78 or more squirrels that are climbing all over Madam and Pop’s apricot tree and taking bites out of the puny fruits and flinging them to the ground which is maddening to Madam who wants to make them into jam. The apricots, not the squirrels. Plus I have to figure out what to do about the absolute pest who is named Ashley and is making Parks & Rec not so much fun. And even though I don’t want to think about it, I need to come up with a way to stop my parents’ separation from turning into a divorce.
Here is the thing about that: All these things are an extremely lot to get done in one summer.
Lucy Rose is back with big plans and big fun in an all-new book about—who else? Her!
