You are SO not invited to my Bat Mitzvah!
Stacy Adelaide Friedman is having conversations with God. She's trying to make deals, actually. Life has a way of getting confusing when you're turning 13, in love with Mr. hip hop Andy Goldfarb, balancing 2 best friends, and need to be 40% prettier.
Stacy, Kelly and Lydia are working their way through middle school life. It's a combination of boy season and bat mitzvah season. The girls are trying to get into the girl clique - The Chicas, and get the boys to notice them.
When Stacy gets busted in her rabbis office making a call to a boy, he asks her about her life. In a last ditch effort to avoid telling her mom, Stacy tells Rabbi Sherwin what's going on. He advises Stacy to make 3 mitzvahs, instead of wishing ill on people. The first 2 are easy to figure out. Her plus size brother needs some help in the cool department, and face it...mom needs a date. But that third mitzvah...what can it be?
Filled with the trappings of teendom and tweendom (Miss Sixty Jeans, LV handbags, Max Azria dresses), older tween girls should eat up this title. Fiona Rosenbloom has caught the angsty energy of the MS girl no matter what her style.
