The Startup Squad (Book #1)
“A refreshing depiction of drama turned positive, this series opener is perfect for young entrepreneurs.”
All the great leaders had to start somewhere. And Theresa (“Resa” for short) is starting with the lemonade stand competition her teacher assigned to the class – but making it a success is going to be a lot harder than Resa thinks. The prize: line-skipping tickets to Adventure Central. The competition: Val, Resa’s middle school nemesis. And the biggest obstacle to success: Resa’s own teammates. Harriet is the class clown, Amelia is the new girl who thinks she knows best, and Didi is Resa’s steadfast friend who doesn’t know the first thing about making or selling lemonade. The four of them quickly realize that the recipe for success is tough to perfect – but listening to each other is the first step. And making new friends might be the most important one…
Face the Music (Book #2)
“…this drama-filled, fast paced, entertaining read places friendship and hard work at its heart.”
Harriet’s brothers are hoping to enter a local battle of the bands. Winning could get them on a reality TV show! But low funds have left them without even a working guitar. The Startup Squad jumps into action-and quickly pulls together a plan to sell T-shirts to raise money. They have a lot of great ideas – until everything starts to go wrong. Ruined t-shirts, musicians with stage fright, and money mishaps soon leave the girls with less funding than they started with. When disappointed fans become an angry mob, the team realizes they have to get back into the groove before the band members – and the Startup Squad – break up for good!
Party Problems (Book #3)
“Fast-paced, fun, and empowering.”
KATHERINE APPLEGATE Newbery Medal-winning author of The One and Only Ivan.
