"Poignant and hilarious, This Is Me From Now On is just like real life . . . only funnier." --Lisa Papademetriou
Life has been predictable for Evie, and she doesn't expect seventh grade to offer many surprises for herself or her longtime best friends, Lily and Nisha. Then Francesca moves next-door to live with her aunt, and suddenly nothing's the same. A free spirit, Francesca has an elastic relationship with the truth and doesn't mind getting involved in matters that are none of her business--as when she tries to engineer a romantic relationship between two teachers, one of whom, as it turns out, is married. Evie is alternately intrigued and infuriated by Francesca's behavior, but there's no doubt that Francesca offers a decidedly different take on life. Dee neatly captures the interactions of middle-schoolers and in Francesca provides a character, who, while larger-than-life, still fits well into the seventh-grade milieu. A quick, fun read. - BOOKLIST, Online Exclusive, November 7, 2010
