Wit and humour shine in this debut novel by a refreshing new voice in middle-grade fiction!

Clarissa Delaney had a plan - this was going to be her year . But so far, grade seven sucks.

First of all, her favourite teacher has gone on sabbatical, leaving her with Mr. Campbell, whose lame sense of humour is completely annoying. Everyone in class drives her crazy, except for her best friend, Benji, but even he is troubled these days. His gentle demeanour has made him the target of threats and some serious bullying. Mr. Campbell hasn't even noticed, which only feeds Clarissa's resentment.

But the worst news comes at home.

Her loving mom, who runs a hair salon out of their home, has always had a gift for lifting everyone's spirits when they're down. But an upsetting diagnosis takes her away temporarily, just when Clarissa needs her the most.

Readers will laugh through their tears, as Clarissa finds her bravest self to get her through this year of surprises.
