This hilarious and heartfelt gem is moving straight to my favorites shelf.

Twelve-year-old Lizbeth always has a plan, and those plans have usually worked--until now. No matter what she tries, she can't get rid of her dad's new girlfriend, Claire. And when she and her mom move, Lizbeth has to join a sixth-grade class already in progress, where her teacher makes her wear a name tag and she's seated with three notorious weirdos.


When faced with mandatory participation in a school talent show, Lizbeth and the Weirdos decide to create self portraits. Reluctantly, Lizbeth finds herself becoming friends with people she thought she had nothing in common with--and coming to terms with the things she can't control.
