Ask My Mood Ring How I Feel

Erica has a pretty normal life--a group of crazy friends, an annoying little sister (who happens to be a genius), and a cute but loud baby brother.  Everything changes the day her mom comes home from the store with nine bikini tops.  That's the day Erica learns her mom has breast cancer, and in nine days she's having surgery.

The whole family is nervous and on edge about the cancer, and they all make promesas, promises to God about things they will do if God will help their mother.  Erica's promesa is to collect 500 sponsors for the race for the cure.  At first she thought this would be easy, but it doesn't take long to realize most people don't even want to listen let alone contribute to the cause.

To make matters worse, her genius little sister has skipped a grade and will be in middle school with Erica this year, but she's also taking 8th grade math which makes Erica feel like the biggest dummy in school.  Plus, Erica is picking up the slack at home by keeping the house clean, the laundry washed, and her baby brother occupied.  With everything going on, there isn't much time left for homework.

Read Diana Lopez's new book about a girls who wishes her friends and family could understand her as well as her mood ring does!
