9780142415009: Yours Truly, Lucy B. Parker: Girl vs. Superstar

Sixth grade is hard enough for Lucy B. Parker, but it gets so much worse when her mom announces that she’s going to marry Laurel Moses’s dad. Yes, that Laurel Moses—the TV-movie-music star who makes Hannah Montana look like some random kid from the sticks. Suddenly, Lucy’s life is turned upside down and sideways. All Lucy wants to do is get through the day without totally embarrassing herself too much, but that’s hard to do when you’re the less-pretty, less-talented not-quite sister of a mega superstar.

About the Author:

Robin Palmer grew up in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and graduated from Boston University before she hit the road for Hollywood. Starting as an assistant in the television literary department of the William Morris Agency, she quickly moved up the ranks and spent the next decade as a literary agent, producer, and television network executive at Lifetime Television, where she developed over one hundred scripts and oversaw the production of over thirty of the cable network's original movies. In 2001, she remembered that she had originally intended to spend her life either as a writer or a toll booth collector (so she could indulge her penchant for spending her days alone reading), but as there are no toll roads in southern California, she decided to give the writing thing a try. Since then, she's written everything from screenplays to essays to a novel to a preschool guide. Although she's constantly threatening to move, she currently resides in New York City.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5–7—Lucy B. Parker, 12, is having a difficult time. Her best friend dumps her, she still hasn't gotten her period, and her mom insists that she wear a bra. Just when things can't get any worse, her mom announces that she's going to marry the father of Laurel Moses, a TV-music-movie star (think Hannah Montana) who happens to hate Lucy's guts. That makes Lucy nothing but the less-pretty, less-talented stepsister of the most famous girl in the world. Gradually Lucy discovers that being a superstar isn't as glamorous and validating as she'd imagined. Palmer does a great job of showing the glitter of stardom as well as the downsides of fame. In the end, the girls learn that being friends and having family you can count on is worth more than any amount of celebrity. It's gratifying that Lucy and Laurel both experience significant attitude changes while also retaining the core of their personalities. Readers will relate to the lessons learned, but they aren't preachy or in-your-face. The writing is easy to follow, and this book will definitely be enjoyed by preteens who long for Laurel's glamorous life, while also appreciating with Lucy's stable home.—Wendy E.
