Angelica and the Buzz is exactly what I was looking for! My daughter is going through some big changes, and this book helped her feel seen and understood. She loved Angelica's journey, and we both laughed out loud at some parts (especially with that character named Damien!). It's a great conversation starter, and I highly recommend it for any young girl navigating the ups and downs of growing up."
