Every school has one…the girl who tries to solve everyone’s troubles! Lara used to be that person, but that was all in the past. She has sworn an oath to stop meddling in other people’s affairs.

But Lara just can’t help it. They need her! The school ground is a mess, kids are fighting, they are crying and blubbering, then there is a new boy who is in major need of Lara’s help. She has no choice really…Lara goes underground, and match makes in secret.

But then someone who Lara didn’t ever imagine steps up to complicate things.


A fun lively story that is easy to read, and provides many giggles. Randa Abdel-Fattah has done a great job of entertaining us with her school yard tale.  The plot was fluid and moved along nicely, the characters were quirky and realistic. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the first in this series (TFM buzz off!) but that did not hinder me from enjoying this book at all!
