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?

From the Hardcover edition.

City Book Review

I regretted not making Mom take the funnel and jam jars out of Grandma’s underwear drawer.” Bessica Lefter is not a very sympathetic character, and it’s hard to be on her side as she seems to do just about everything she can to blow up her middle school life.
