My Life in Pink and Green by Lisa Greenwald. Unabridged audiobook on 5 compact discs. Read by Cassandra Morris. Brilliance Audio, November, 2011. 9781455857425.

Publisher synopsis: Twelve-year-old Lucy Desberg believes in taking fate into her own hands. When the local homecoming queen shows up at her family’s drugstore with a beauty disaster that Lucy helps to fix, word gets out, and suddenly Lucy has a line of makeover customers for every school dance and bat mitzvah in Connecticut. But it’ll take more than makeovers to save the struggling pharmacy. Lucy searches long and hard for a solution that will resuscitate the family business and help the environment, too. But will Lucy’s spacey mom and stubborn grandma stop fighting long enough to listen to a seventh-grader?
In this funny and sweet debut novel, Lucy knows what she wants and is prepared to fight for it, whether it’s great makeup, a killer business plan, or a better world.
I have had the book on TOM, the tbr, ever since it pubbed. It looks like such fun and I'm mad at myself for not getting to it. When I picked up the arc of the sequel, I made a promise to read this first but I donated my book to my school library and it's always out so rather than borrowing a copy from the public library, I checked to see if was available as an audio. It was and, at a reasonable price. 
That's what's new with me. What's new with you? 

Happy reading!
