Lucy's family pharmacy/drugstore isn't doing well, so she decides to try to take matters into her own hands. Hair crisis for the would-be homecoming queen on the day of the dance? Lucy's got a fix for that. What difference could a few makeovers possibly make?
This is a cute story with a well-meaning protagonist who has to deal with some unexpected consequences, but it's fun seeing her take action to try to save her family business. It's not a book full of rich symbolism, but it's an enjoyable realistic fiction novel that has you rooting for the main character.
