Twelve-year-old Lucy Desberg is a natural problem-solver. At her family’s struggling pharmacy, she has a line of makeover customers for every school dance and bat mitzvah. But all the makeup tips in the world won’t help save the business. If only she could find a way to make it the center of town again--a place where people want to spend time, like in the old days. Lucy dreams up a solution that could resuscitate the family business and help the environment, too. But will Lucy’s family stop fighting long enough to listen to a seventh-grader?

I read this book quite recently and really enjoyed it! It was easy to read and was one of those books that you can read over a period of time and you won't forget any of it. I think this book is a perfect beach read, especially if you like makeup!

Lucy is a 12 year old girl who's family pharmacy is almost bankrupt. Also, her mom and grandmothers never ending bickering seems to make it worse. Her best friend Sunny's mom puts them both in Earth Club at their school which inspires Lucy's plan to help the pharmacy and the earth. When Lucy learns this she no longer cares that Sunny's obnoxious brother Yamir is also in the Earth Club. She just wants to help the family business and be noticed.

Inspired by the school's Earth Club and her best friend Sunny, Lucy plans to find a plan that will both save the pharmacy and the planet- and maybe earning some make-up and love tips along the way!
