The Invisible Rules of the Zoe Lama

By Tish Cohen
Rating: 3 3/4 stars

Ever since Zoe's father died, she has had to become an organizer to keep her mother and grandmother on track. Her natural abilities have become legendary at school, where, by 7th grade, she is sought out for her wise rules and advice. When a new girl starts school with a bad reputation, Zoe decides to take her under her wing and reform her. Reforming Maisie, fixing her mother up with the handsome Mr. Lindsay, being chairgirl of the winter dance, keeping her grandmother (with advancing Alzheimer's) out of trouble, as well as doing her schoolwork and other duties has Zoe going full tilt all the time. When you are juggling many balls in the air, it is only a matter of time before one drops--and when one ball falls, it is a doozy. Have we seen the end of Zoe as we know her? Readers will enjoy our bossy Zoe, even when she falls from grace. Fans can read more about her in the sequel, The One and Only Zoe Lama.
