Lola Levine (Series)

Written by Monica Brown
Illustrated by Monica Brown
Published by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Lola Levine likes writing in her diario, sipping her mom’s cafe con leche, eating her dad’s matzo ball soup, and playing soccer with her team, the Orange Smoothies. So what if she doesn’t always fit in?

Lola is fierce on the field, but when a soccer game during recess gets too competitive, she accidentally hurts her classmate Juan Gomez. Now everyone is calling her Mean Lola Levine! Lola feels terrible, but with the help of her family, her super best friend, Josh Blot, and a little “pencil power,” she just might be able to turn it all around

…. young readers will be inspired by Lola’s big heart and creative spirit as she learns to navigate the second grade in true Lola style!
