Review: Lola Zuckerman, always last because of the Z, is in for the worst week ever. Her Mom and Dad are each traveling, Grandmother comes to stay, she wants to be best friends, but she is always the "rotten tomato". Her teacher and the principal each try to help, but Grandmother's social stories are the very best! There are so many real-life incidents, and working from a child's reasoning and point-of-view, this is fun, hilarious, and also a teaching tool.
