Pippa Park is a likeable, lively Korean-American from a middle class family who tries to fit in at a new elite school in Pippa Park Raises Her Game. Should Pippa cling to being someone she’s not? Or bring her true whole self to the hallowed halls of Lakeview Private?
Middle graders will love this retelling of Great Expectations from author Erin Yun.
PLUS a special Escape Room game! You are playing as Pippa Park. After receiving a D on your latest math quiz, your older sister and guardian, Mina, has grounded you. However, it’s Saturday, which means playing a basketball game with your best friend, Buddy, at the park. No way you’re going to miss that! But you can’t just sneak out—Mina has confiscated your basketball and locked it up. In an attempt to force Pippa into actually doing her homework, Mina has hidden the passcode to the locks in Pippa’s various quizzes and homework from her classes at Lakeview. You’re supposed to meet up with Buddy at 2 p.m., and it’s currently 1:30—meaning you have exactly thirty minutes to escape your room!
