ABSOLUTELY MAYBE, by Lisa Yee

Will she be able to find her father? Absolutely Maybe!

Maybe’s mother is a beauty pageant trainer who named her only daughter “Maybelline” after her favorite brand of mascara.  She’s had six husbands and is going on her seventh…but when stepdad-to-be starts making extremely creepy moves on Maybe, she cuts out for California with her two best friends:  Ted, her Thai buddy who’s looking for more Thai culture than their little Florida town has to offer; and Hollywood – who, true to his name, is headed for film school at USC and a shining career as a movie maker.

Do things ever go as planned?  Of course not!  But that’s what makes it fun.  Maybe starts out as a punky, pink haired Goth… and her transformation is the stuff movies are made of (literally).  This is a fun book about taking the unexpected things that life hands out and finding the silver lining.  Absolutely for sure!
