This novel-in-verse follows Moth, who is grieving the loss of her entire family in a car accident, and Sani, who is struggling with his own sadness but finds happiness in his friendship with Moth. Because of the format, this is a really fast read, which is great since the ending is so amazing that you'll want to re-read the entire book. Trust me.

This story follows former best friends Lita and Chicky as they team up to help Lita win the Miss Meteor beauty pageant.

If you're looking for a book that will have you smiling from ear to ear, this is it!
