    The Pity Party: 8th Grade in the Life of Me, Cass

    The Pity Party: 8th Grade in the Life of Me, Cass

    by Alison Pollet

    Follow quick-witted Cass Levin through the rugged terrain of eighth grade at New York City's Elston Prep in this sequel to Alison Pollet's brilliant debut, Nobody Was Here. Cass confronts her problems with spirited resilience, but as the year progresses, her isolation increases, and her deepest struggles get the best of her. She's haunted by nightmares about her deceased parents; she's arguing with her friends and her guardian Bea. Something has to change! And so Cass embarks on an adventure that takes her away from home, back to her past, and closer to the understanding that what she really needs to do is grieve. A funny, witty, and utterly moving story of loss and the crazy way it plays with a thirteen-year-old's mind.

About This Book

It's 1981 and Penelope Schwartzbaum has just started seventh grade at New York City's Elston Prep, and everything feels unfamiliar: the campus, the classes, even Stacy-and she's been Penelope's best friend for six years! Stacy has joined a clique of girls and doesn't even notice that Penelope is floating farther away. At home, the new mother's helper, Jenny, has Penelope's little brother swooning all over the place. And when her parents are home-which is rare-all they ever do is fight.
