Summary

From an NYT bestselling author comes the first in an illustrated middle grade series about a Panamanian American girl who uses humor and a little mischief to navigate her best friend moving away and her sister’s overbearing and all-consuming quince preparations.

Given the choice of a friend who's honest, loyal, or the Most Fun Ever, larger-than-life Flora Violeta LeFevre and her steadfast sidekick Clara Bayano would obviously pick option three. So when the sad news breaks that Clara's moving, the girls roll up their sleeves and get to business: finding Flora an exciting new BFF to continue the adventures in Clara's stead. In between Flora's sister Maylin's neverending dress try-ons and dance practices for her upcoming quinceañera, Flora and Clara come up with a list of all the important traits that Flora's next buddy has to have, like being able to code, speaking (or at least trying to learn) another language, and making jaws drop at the skate park. But when newcomer Zaidee Khal surpasses Flora's expectations in surprising ways, Flora realizes that replacing one friend with another isn't quite as simple as it seems. . . . Especially as Clara starts making new friends of her own and preparations for Maylin's quince take a disastrous (but hilarious) turn.
