"Oh my gosh, hilarious! Just read it."

Fans of Junie B. Jones will love this hilariously spunky, little girl.
There are three things seven-year-old Zuri is sure of. First, beetle-faced Josh lives to terrorize her in class. Second, curly hair is the best hair in the world. (Good thing she has a ton of it!) Third, Pickle is her very best friend in the whole universe.
When Neli surprises Zuri and Pickle with not-so-curly hair, Zuri comes to the rescue. She knows just what to do to return it back to its natural state. After all, she is the leader of the Curly Girl Club. But even leaders need to learn valuable lessons, like how terrible it is to exclude someone because of how they look.
Funny stories of imaginative play, friendship, and hair.
The best part about Zuri's day was she and Pickle were finally off punishment. The worse part was beetle-faced Josh harassing her at school, a new girl in class had a Z name like her, and Zuri and Pickle plan a Curly Girl Party, but no one shows up.
When Zuri overhears that her aunt's hair is too frizzy and that she may cut it, she decides it's a job for Zuri the Great and makes a plan to save her aunt's hair. Zuri learns that the good things she did for everyone to see weren't what made her great, but the good things she did when no one was watching.
