ALA Booklist
Though she's excited by the possibility of performing, second-grader Lola Levine's stage fright earns her a nonspeaking part. Her flamboyant Florida grandmother (Bubbe) flies in to see her, anyhow. It's a good thing, too, because when things start to go wrong, Bubbe dramatically rescues Lola from an embarrassing costume accident. Lola is an appealing biracial character, who is impulsive and energetic. Her dreams of stardom and the reality of her paralyzing nervousness will be familiar to many readers, as will the feeling of having a slightly annoying little brother. Episodic first-person chapters bring in Dolores Huerta's campaign for farm workers, the folly of making fun of someone's name, and the sad result of blowing too-big chewing gum bubbles. Gray-scale drawings support the text, except when brother Ben, described as pony-tailed like his father, is shown with a tightly curled mop. Readers who met first Lola in Lola Levine Is Not Mean (2015) will be pleased to see her in a new role. This sequel should win her new fans.

Gr 13 Shalom! Lola, a spunky half-Jewish, half-Peruvian girl, faces a new challenge: drama class and the class play. Lola considers herself a dramatic person and dreams of being the star of the show, but when Lola freezes up at her audition, she gets cast as Squirrel a nonspeaking part. Still, the show must go on. Young readers will identify with Lola's plight and root for her throughout. Charming black-and-white illustrations bring the characters to life. Fans of characters like Clementine and Judy Moody will love Lola, too, and the book includes cultural details that make this series a good choice for everyday diversity. Now out in paperback.

Seven-year-old Lola Levine is fierce on and off the soccer field. She can do a slide tackle (although she's not supposed to) and even likes gooey worms. Nothing scares Lola! That is, until she's auditioning in front of EVERYONE for her class play. After Lola is overcome with stage fright, she's cast as Squirrel #2, a non-speaking part!

Lola is more than a little disappointed, and she looks to her bubbe for advice and comfort. But on opening night, the curtain rises and she finds herself smack in the middle of an exasperating turn of events.

In this fun and heartfelt chapter book, can Lola give Squirrel #2 her own special stamp and make it a play to remember?
