New Girl on Salt Flat Road

Eleven-year-old Lola Zola wants a bra, but her mother won't buy her one, reminding her that she's "not quite ready." Ouch. But Lola isn't giving up - she's even praying for her pancakes to become cupcakes. Her prayers go unanswered and Lola and her BFF, Melanie, are coming to the realization that they'll be the only girls at school without bras. Just when they've become used to being called "Flatty Patties," a new girl with a great figure moves in next door to Lola in the sleepy desert town of Mirage. "Queen Pauline," as Lola and Melanie call her, hails from Malibu and lives tween life in the fast lane. She shoplifts, steals friends, and likes boys, boys, boys - including Buck, Lola's secret crush from the lemonade war days. Before Lola knows it, Lola is also racing to womanhood, crashing into the law and making spectacle of her fugitive self.
