National bestselling author Terri Libenson returns with another endearing, relatable story of friendship and finding confidence. Perfect for fans of Raina Telgemeier and Jennifer L. Holm.

Middle school is full of challenges.

Everyone knows how much brainy Bri likes the spotlight (not). So why did she ever agree to something that forces her to learn a new language, give a speech, help organize a party, and juggle drama at school and home?! As the big event inches closer, Bri wonders if it’s all worth it. . . .

Told in alternating past and present chapters, Bri’s heartwarming story unfolds over the eight months leading up to her bat mitzvah—as well as over the course of the big day itself.

She’s not a fan of being in the spotlight, so planning for an event where she’ll have to give a speech in front of all her friends and family isn’t exactly on her bucket list. To make things worse, she’s juggling all the party prep with some serious drama, at home and at school. As the big day gets closer, Brianna’s feeling overwhelmed and starts to wonder if it’s even worth it at all.
