To her surprise she ends up meeting the mystery boy in a very unlikely place, making an unexpected new friend and finds her new young adult self with the help of her hippie parents and friends.

Mates, Dates, and Inflatable Bras by Cathy Hopkins

But, everything changes when Lucy saw a boy from a near by school. She’s afraid shes losing her best friend Izzie to the new girl Nesta and she really wants to meet the handsome boy she saw walking out of St.

Nesta and Izzy look sixteen, but Lucy, at fourteen, can easily pass for a twelve-year-old. Price may vary by retailer. Also, I liked how everyhting was treated as a big deal.
