Lola Levine likes writing in her diario , sipping her mom's cafe 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.

In this first book in a series, young readers will be inspired by Lola's big heart and creative spirit as she learns to navigate the second grade in true Lola style!

Lola, a 2nd grader of Peruvian-Jewish descent, loves playing soccer more than anything. She faces the normal trials of a young person her age - teasing classmates, an annoying younger brother, and parents who won't let her get a cat. But when she accidentally injures a classmate while playing soccer at recess, she finds herself somewhat outcast. Lola uses letter and diary writing to work out her feelings, and wants to be a writer like her mom when she grows up. The first in a series of Lola books, this selection will leave readers cheering for Lola and sympathizing with her plight.
