Like I said, lots of things are happening around me. In five days, BECOMING MISS IZZY launches. This book is amazing and has met with raving five-star reviews. I don't know how to explain this, but this book is a must-read for your middle schooler this summer. Authors Sue Zook and Mary Lazsarski nailed this book in a fun and creative way and should be read with your child to open up the lines of communications. This isn't an "I told you so," book; rather, it is fun, a little crazy, and perfectly addresses coming of age issues middle schoolers face. Pre-order your copy today.
“Becoming Miss Izzy” is a wonderful tale of a young lady as she deals with the minefield of being an adolescent. This book is written in the first person so you see and feel everything that Izzy that happens . The challenges she faces are real and solutions are given in a loving and practical manner. It also is a great tool to help open up a dialogue between parent and child so they can easily discuss issues.
This book should make a young person think as they deal with the problems of middle school. It breaks down the way to develop solutions to problems, and one is totally sympathetic with all the characters. You want Izzy’s mom and family to be yours. You want the bullies to go away. You want to be Izzy’s friend.
As a former middle school teacher, I know this would have been a wonderful book to share with my students. This book belongs in every library for adolescents to read." Joanne E Meyerhoff
