Beauty and Bernice (Hardcover)

,
Twelve-year-old Bernice Baransky likes the grunge look she's come by honestly as the only girl at Porchtown Skate Park who can pop an ollie, ride the rails, and grind the slabs. She'd love to impress Wyatt Anderson, a skater who calls her Dude, but Bernice can't seem to do more than mumble when he's around. Should she accept help from a new neighbor, the proper and princessy Odelia, who is desperate to befriend her? Odelia keeps a fancy notebook called Odelia's Guide to the Social Graces and spouts off hilarious lessons on poise, posture, manners, and what to do about embarrassing "oopsies" like unexpected burps and spilled soda. This exciting story takes readers on a thrill ride from the skate park's half-pipe to Smile Academy, a summer camp for Down syndrome children. A novel full of adventure and heart, it asks the question: can two very different people ever be friends?
