"This is another very true-to-life story about the challenges of growing up. Julie Sternberg captures young emotions so perfectly!" -School Library Monthly
Tween readers are in for a real treat! Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake is the third book featuring Eleanor and it's sweet.
Eleanor worries when beautiful and sophisticated Ainsley enrolls in her school. Everyone is buzzing about the new girl, and even Eleanor's best friend Pearl seems entirely taken by Ainsley.
When Eleanor is picked as the lead for the school play, she develops an overblown case of stage fright but is saved by friend Nicholas who always seems to have her back.
Girls will empathize with Eleanor as she tries to save her friendship with Pearl. Growing up is a tough time for everyone, but Eleanor manages with a little help from her friends.
Recommended grade 4-up. Quick and easy read with short chapters and easy to read font.
