Julep hates her life. She feels like she is air...no one can see her. Being a middle child, she is surrounded by her perfect older sister and her attention-hogging younger brother. At least she has her best friends Trig and Bernadette. And she might have Danica... but probably not. You see, Danica is the most popular girl in school. Danica has talked to Julep before, but only when no one else is around. Those moments are Julep's favorites, except she wants everyone to know! She wants to shout "Everyone listen up! Danica, the most popular girl in school is talking to me!!". But she can't. And after a very PRIVATE journal entry gets read to most of the school, Julep is mortified. But, Danica feels bad for her and invites Julep to her Halloween party. Now Julep has to make a decision. Will she go to the party and abandon her little brother with asthma, or will she keep her promise?
With superb storytelling, Trudi Trueit really hits it out of the ballpark with this book. It leaves you feeling upset for Julep, or mad at Cooper (her brother). I highly suggest this book!!
