ASK MY MOOD RING HOW I FEEL, by Diana Lopez

The story: Chia just got some terrible news: her mother has cancer, and now everything she had planned for her 8th grade year doesn’t seem that important anymore. She makes a promesa (a kind of deal with God)and now she has to find 500 people to sponsor her in the Race for the Cure. She doesn’t want to talk about it to her friends…but it turns out she’s going to need her friends more than ever before this is all over!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: The author Lopez paints a believable picture of an 8th-grade girl trying to deal not only with her mother’s breast cancer, but also with drama between friends, crushing on all the top-tier cuties at school, and totally not noticing the one boy who really likes her, just because he’s been around since first grade. If you’re a girl who likes a story about the kinds of things that happen to regular people, you’ll like this one!
