Publisher Summary

How will Eliza make it through the sixth grade? Her ADHD tends to complicate things. . . . Eliza Bing stuck with taekwondo and earned her yellow belt even though her family expected her to quit. She’s tough enough to break boards with her bare hands! Next up: middle school, and hopefully a best friend. The school play turns out to be the perfect opportunity to befriend confident, stage-obsessed Annie. But can their friendship survive the spotlight? The joys and sorrows of middle school come to life in this funny and heartfelt sequel to Eliza Bing Is (NOT) a Big, Fat Quitter, recipient of the Christopher Award and four child-voted state award nominations.

Who Wrote Eliza Bing Is (Not) a Star

Carmella Van Vleet

I’m a former elementary teacher who has been writing full-time for the last twenty years. My debut children’s novel, Eliza Bing Is (Not) A Big, Fat Quitter, received a Christopher Award and was nominated to four state award lists. And my debut picture book, To the Stars! The A First American Woman to Walk in Space, was on the 2017 Amelia Bloomer list. I like lists, cooking shows, taekwondo, and Pez dispensers - but not necessarily in that order.
