Perfect for fans of Beverly Cleary's "Ramona" and Ivy & Bean, here is a laugh-out-loud, heartwarming, and intensely satisfying story about the importance of friendship and creative problem-solving. The first in a series!

Lola Zuckerman hates being last for everything. If only she were Lola Adams or Lola Appleby or anything but Z for Zuckerman. And she is having a particularly hard time right now. Her best friend Amanda Anderson is now her ex-best friend. Her grandparents have moved back to Texas, and her mother is launching a new career. Why is everything always changing? What would make things much, much better is if Lola were to win the Going-Green Contest at school and beat Amanda Anderson, who is determined to win first place too. How can Lola, who is always last, prove that she's not least?
