by E. J. (Elizabeth Jane) Atkinson
Alice has just moved from Boston to the suburbs. She has lots to be excited about: a big house with a yard, and she'll be starting middle school this year. Zen, one of the first kids she meets, seems kind of weird. He has a room full of craft projects and fashion magazines, and his ambition is to open a total body salon. Zen thinks Alice will be popular at school. He helps her pick out the right clothes and accessories, and who to make friends with. But the girls Zen has picked for Alice seem to be pretty mean - especially to Zen. Alice doesn't know what to do, be popular or follow her heart? A book about doing the right thing, even when it's not the easy thing!
