ABOUT THIS BOOK

Bessica's settled into middle school life . . . her friendship with Sylvie is back on, she's made some cool new friends, she's dealing with the psycho-bullies, and handling more homework than should ever be allowed. But what's worrying her most these days are her mascot duties. The pressure's on to be the funniest, wildest bear mascot her school's ever seen—and to make sure her rival tiger mascot doesn't humiliate her on the field. Is that even possible?

QUOTES

"Will have readers laughing aloud."--Booklist
"[Bessica's] endearing qualities keep one rooting for her."--School Library Journal
"A fun story."--Midwest Book Review
"Informative and worthwhile."--VOYA

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY

KRISTEN TRACY grew up in a small town in Idaho, where she learned a lot about bears. Sadly, she was not clever enough to reinvent herself in middle school. Also, technically, Kristen Tracy never went to middle school. She attended North Bonneville Junior High, where she took classes in industrial exploration (which involved lots of saws), Idaho history, public speaking, and keyboarding. Her least favorite class was PE, in which she was forced to run, tumble, hurdle, play shuffleboard, and perform the flexed-arm hang.
