Pippa Park Raises Her Game -- Review

Disclosure: We were sent this book for free in exchange for a review. All opinions are our own.

Pippa Park Raises her Game by Erin Yun is a wonderful book for teen and tween readers. It talks about feeling left out, expectations, and cultural differences. Pippa lives with her sister and her brother in law, who own a laundromat and live in a small apartment. Pippa longs to go to the local private school, but can't afford it. But suddenly, she gets a mysterious  scholarship offer. her dreams are coming true! She's on a great basket ball team, she's friends with all the popular girls, and most of all, no one knows her background. But who nominated her for a scholarship? Her quiet crush? The mysterious stranger in the woods? Even more puzzling, who is sending her hurtful, anonymous, messages? Worst of all, how long can she pretend she's someone she's not?

What I liked about this book is that the heroine, Pippa, is relatable. She wants a better life. Don't we all. She wants to fit in. Join the club. She's not afraid to work hard. Most of all, she wants friends. I enjoyed reading about Pippa as she journeyed threw hard times. She makes mistakes, but she learns from them. She makes messes, but works hard to clean them up. She doesn't care what people think. 

Just like Pippa, we all should follow our dreams and work hard. So in my opinion this is a great book. I hope you like it!
