"Lola Levine Is Not Mean!" by Monica Brown
“Lola Levine likes writing in her diario, sipping her mom’s café con leche, eating her dad’s matzo ball soup, and playing soccer with her team, the Orange Smoothies. So what if she doesn’t always fit in? Lola is fierce on the field, but when a soccer game during recess gets too competitive, she accidentally hurts her classmate Juan Gomez. Now everyone is calling her Mean Lola Levine! Lola feels terrible, but with the help of her family, her super best friend, Josh Blot, and a little ‘pencil power,’ she just might be able to turn it all around.”
*Here are the following pages that you will receive with your kit!*
