About the Book:
Snip! With one cut of the scissors, Erin’s social life changes absolutely. It’s hard enough
being a new girl, but it’s that much worse to have a dorky older sister in the same school. When she is snubbed by the
pretty and popular crowd, Erin commits an over-the-top vengeful act. This novel focuses on issues of family loyalty, peer
pressure, and the desperate desire to belong. How Erin comes to terms with what she has done and with her sister makes this
book a good choice for any girl threading her way through the challenging corridors of middle school.
