Meet Lola Levine--a biracial bicultural second grader, who isn't afraid to be herself, in this first book in a new chapter book series. Lola loves writing in her diario, and playing soccer with her team, the Orange Smoothies. But when a soccer game at recess gets too "competitive," Lola accidentally hurts her classmate. Now everyone is calling her Mean Lola Levine! Lola feels terrible, but with the help of those who love her most, she learns how to navigate the 2nd grade in true Lola fashion--with humor and the power of words. In this first book in a series, Lola's big heart will ring true to young readers.

"Lola's vivacious personality spills out over the pages. Domiguez's b&w spot illustrations are in step with the upbeat mood, and beyond the soccer theme of this book, Brown highlights Lola's blended heritage, love of animals, and interest in writing, introducing plenty of material to explore in future books." Publishers Weekly"
"This first entry in a smartly crafted new series introduces Lola, best friend Josh Blot, and her family. The appealing protagonist is energetic and enthusiastic [and] with as much about family and friends as about sports, this chapter book should have broad appeal." Booklist"
