Gr 4-7–Pippa explores the highs and lows of friendships and first crushes in this well-crafted sequel to Pippa Park Raises her Game. As Christmas approaches, Pippa is busier than ever juggling basketball, homework, hanging out with her friends, and working at her sister’s laundromat. When she accidentally agrees to host her new friends’ annual Christmas party and her sister volunteers her to help out with the church pageant, Pippa’s responsibilities increase. Throw in money troubles, a grumpy cat, and confusing feelings for both her math tutor Eliot and an old friend from church, and Pippa finds herself in over her head.
VERDICT This warm-hearted, feel-good series continues to realistically explore one Korean American girl’s middle school experience in a relatable way.
