New York Times-bestselling author Lauren Myracle is back for another year of ups and downs with Eleven's fabulous Winnie

Winnie Perry went through a lot when she was eleven, from shifting friendships to her teenage sister's mood swings. But now that Winnie is twelve-and one step closer to being a teenager herself-there is so much more to deal with. Will her new friendship with Dinah Last? Can she handle the pressures of junior high? And, most important, will Winnie survive bra shopping (in public!) with Mom?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Jen Taylor is chatty, conspiratorial, dejected, or elated as each moment necessitates. Her voice is light and her pacing jaunty as Winnie moves from boy watching to classmate assessing to birthday planning. Listeners will be enveloped by her welcoming voice.”

    AudioFile

  • “The contemporary voice is casual, funny, and, well, nice. Fans of Judy Blume and of Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s early Alice books will want this.”

    Booklist

  • “Light, quick reading with an authentic perspective.”

    Kirkus Reviews
