In punchy, single-page chapters, Lou (age 12) shares the high and low points of her year as a tween. She celebrates holidays with her single mom, takes a few screamingly awkward steps into dating, tries to set up her mom with the new hipster guy next door, acquires a cat, and discovers along with her BFF Mina that they may just be outgrowing playing with dolls. Valentines Day starts off well, until Lous schemes begin to unravel . . .
