Meet Korean American Pippa Park in the second book of this compelling drama-filled middle school series about friendships, bullying, crushes, and family.
Pippa Park picks up right where she left off . . . trying to balance basketball, school, friends, working at the struggling family laundromat, and fitting in. Eliot, her math tutor—and the cutest boy at school—is finally paying attention to her. And Marvel—her childhood friend—is making her required volunteering much more interesting. But things with the Royals, her new friends and teammates who rule the school, still feel a bit rocky. Especially because Caroline, a head Royal, would like nothing more than to see Pippa fail.
So when Pippa is faced with hosting the annual Christmas Eve party that could make or break her social life, how can she say no? Will Pippa make enough money to cover the costs while juggling crushes and everything else? With courage and determination, Pippa sets out to host the party, find the perfect dress, pick the right boy, and stay true to her real self.
Jennifer Sun Bell (she/her) is an award-winning actress, singer, and voice-over actor who is passionate about giving a voice to the unheard stories of this world and of our imagination. Being mixed, Korean and American, she found there were so many silenced voices and stories that needed to be shared. A once shy girl who was once told her speaking voice was "not good" and that she should speak like she sings, she's found that no matter your sound, if you speak from your heart, your voice will be heard and will make an impact.
She can be heard as bomb enthusiast Rin in Midwinter Entertainment's Scavengers, a fun singing (insert NDA) in an upcoming Dreamworks animation, and so much more she can't share just yet! She also had the pleasure of narrating some amazing audiobooks, including Free Food for Millionaires by Min Jin Lee and What's Done in Darkness by Laura McHugh. Jennifer has also worked in film/TV alongside some of the greats, like Jim Carrey and Don Cheadle.
