I'm not sure how she did it, but Kristen Tracy managed to write a sequel to The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter that makes Bessica look even more like a stuck-up, selfish, spoiled, narcissistic brat.

[Light spoilers follow.]

In this book we see Bessica get in a "text war" with her "best friend," Sylvie, buy said best friend a nose hair trimmer for her birthday, continuously ignore her parents and grandma and make rude comments, see things only her way, and have an epic face-to-face with T.J. the Tig

This sequel to The Reinvention of Bessica Lefter picks up with Bessica heavily invested in both her position as school mascot and in reestablishing her friendship with Sylvie. However, she's still disorganized, and forgets a mascot meeting, which gives her co-mascot, Alice, a chance to schedule all of the good games. Sylvie and Bessica are still not quite in sync, and get involved in a nasty text message battle that ends in them not speaking. Bessica is also worried about her grandmother because ...more
This book felt very over the top. The main girl in the story was very dramatic about starting middle school. She messed with her grandmother's online dating page to be more appealing so that her grandmother split up with her boyfriend. She got in a texting war with her best friend, Sylvie and then gave her a nose shaver for her birthday. These are just some of the ways that this girl was over the top.
This is the second book in the Bessica Lefter series. It is a really good book and I recommend it for all ages. I read parts of it out loud and my mom was bursting at the seams with laughter. Anyone could pick this book up and enjoy it.

Bessica Lefter is in grade 6th and has the life every 6th grader wished they had; she's half-mascot and she's even got her crush, the gorgeous Noll Beck aka her neighbour, talking to her. Bessica may seem like she's got it all but she's got a lot on her plate this year such as best friend problems, mascot worries, and watching her grandmother date WIlly, a person she dislikes. She has to make it through the year without being tortured by the other half-mascot as well as the other team's mascot a ...more
The second book about Bessica Lefter follows her ongoing problems with her BFF, "psycho bullies", family, and general middle school drama. Bessica has won a spot as one half of their school mascot and she takes her new duties very seriously, as she believes it is her chance to stand out and be somebody in middle school. The book contains the usual drama of tween books (detention! boys! text fights!), including school mishaps and a cute boy next door. Little asides are sprinkled throughout the bo ...more

I thought this book was a good sequel to "The reinvention of Bessica Lefter." I think that this book did not quite measure up to the first book, and I sometimes I found myself bored with the book. I would not recommend this book who hasn't read the first book, but to anyone who has I would, but be prepared to lower your standards.
This book was great! I absolutely love the imagery because the words had so much detail that I had picture going through my mind as I read each paragraph! I'm reading another one of her book called Camile McPhee fell under the bus and it is good too!

This girl seems a little over the top. I guess some of the sixth grade middle school girls act like this, but not very many. If I hadn't gotten it for free, I wouldn't be adding to my library. Offer to the somewhat immature sixth grade girls.
I really liked this book. I like how it really ties in with the conflicts of a typical middle schooler and shows you're not the only one who makes mistakes you want to take back.

I really liked the Reinvention of Bessica Lefter so I read this one to. I totally love this book. it is very exciting and funny in many ways
I didn't like this book, it didn't seem like a middle schooler did the stuff in this book it should have been a high schooler
