Lucy Rose Series : Titles in Order

Book 4
I’M LUCY ROSE and here’s the thing about friends: I am lucky in them. And here’s the thing about that: sometimes they are in need indeed, especially when one of them buys a plumbing store and needs to diva it up so it can turn into a bakery. That is one job that takes work and costs plenty, and even an army of McBees couldn’t do it alone. But I am one busy bee who loves my friends.
Book 3
I’m Lucy Rose, and here’s the thing about 4th: that grade is busy like you can’t believe! Especially if you are a person who is already PLENTY busy on account of having RESPONSIBILITIES and I am that kind exactly. I am already collecting a vocabulary, plus I have to think up new palindromes and now I have to do the most P-U thing which is the MULTIPLICATION tables, which I would say is a thing I hate, if I was allowed to say hate, which I am not.
PLUS I have to do the greatest thing and that is be in the play of Annie and I’m sure I will get to be Annie because 1. I have red hair and 2. if I don’t I will absolutely perish to death.
PLUS there is another thing I have to do absolutely constantly and that is what my mom calls eavesdropping but I call LISTENING VERY QUIETLY SO I CAN KNOW THINGS. But that turns out to be halfway sickening because now I know a thing about my mom and it’s that she has a FRIEND that is a MAN and I think they are having DATES. That makes me feel like I’m horrified to pieces and part of me doesn’t want to know a single more thing but the other part does because how else can I figure out how to keep those 2 apart?
And here is the thing about that: it can make a girl exhausted.
Book 2
I’m Lucy Rose, and here’s the thing about this summer: I am big on fun and big on plans. I am desperate to make a lanyard keychain, and Jonique is feeling the same about potholders. Plus I have to get rid of 78 or more squirrels that are climbing all over Madam and Pop’s apricot tree and taking bites out of the puny fruits and flinging them to the ground which is maddening to Madam who wants to make them into jam. The apricots, not the squirrels. Plus I have to figure out what to do about the absolute pest who is named Ashley and is making Parks & Rec not so much fun. And even though I don’t want to think about it, I need to come up with a way to stop my parents’ separation from turning into a divorce.

Here is the thing about that: All these things are an extremely lot to get done in one summer.

Lucy Rose is back with big plans and big fun in an all-new book about—who else? Her!
Book 1
I’m Lucy Rose and here’s the thing about me: I am eight and according to my grandfather I have the kind of life that is called eventful, which means NOT boring. According to my mom and my grandmother, I’m what they call a handful. And according to my dad, I am one smart cookie.
I say I am one girl who is feeling not-so-sure about things on account of my parents got a separation. Plus my mom and I just moved to Washington, D.C. Plus I haven’t met any friends yet, but I do know someone who is not one and that is Adam Melon, who I call Melonhead.
Here’s another thing about me: Most of the time, I am plain hilarious.
