The second book in the humorous, heartfelt, highly illustrated series about a girl who doodles to cope with her anxiety, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sara Shepard.
Halfway through the fifth grade, Penny Lowry is discovering that things are actually going … okay! With her friends Maria, Kristian, and Rocco on her side, and her lovable dog Cosmo, she can make it through anything. And when her anxiety comes back, there’s always her doodling, or talking to Mrs. Hines, the Feelings Teacher. But big change is around the corner: Penny’s family is moving to a new house, her mom is about to give birth to twins, and most stressful of all, she’s been tapped for a role in her class play!
Rolling with life’s surprises isn’t Penny’s strength. But she’s learning—one doodle at a time!
