Ratings: ★ ★ ★ ★
The book tells the story of Anna Lee Cooper, a 12-year-old girl with a generous heart. Kids at school have always bullied her for having blue and brown eyes, saying that those eyes are cursed. She is determined to make them stop bullying her, and she knows how to do it... all she needs to do is accomplish her secret mission.
I liked the plot, it was simple yet powerful. The story is light and sweet, a heart warming story about friendship and helping those in need. The book is recommended to children 9-15 years old.
About the book:
Anna Lee Cooper has a secret mission. That's why she starts a pet washing business at her family's car wash. Pretty soon, Anna Lee is up to her elbows in soap and fur. And trouble. Neighborhood bully, Roland Tuttle, just won't leave her alone. Anna Lee will do anything to hang on to her hard-earned money--even if it means taking on Roland all by herself.
But things aren't always as they seem. When Roland's family gets in a jam, Anna Lee has to decide if helping them is more important than completing her own secret mission.
