because she tugged at my heartstrings Josephine was a quiet, young woman, who s life got a little tilted, when she found out that her mother had breast cancer She was a twin, and her brother, Chance, was always standing out, while Josephine tried to blend in In a show of support for their mother and others dealing with breast cancer, Chance dyed his hair pink This, of course, drew a lot of attention, and then the secret was out that Josephine s mother was ill, and the pitying looks began I really valued Josephine s growth during this story At first, she was angry when the news of her mother s illness got out, but then she saw how her friends did not pity her, but rather, wanted to show her support They wanted to be there for her, in much the same way that she realized she wanted to be there for her mom and her brother Josephine was also a worrier She liked predictability, stability, and knowing what to expect Her mother s illness, impending surgery, and the normal day to day worries of a 7th grader got to be a bit of a burden for Jo I am pretty sure 12 year old me may have made some some emotionally driven missteps in this situation as well The important part was that Josephine realized she made mistakes, she atoned for her mistakes, and she learned from them She never stopped valuing her friends and family at any point, and she did finally realize that being honest with them was of the utmost importance I also liked the way Josephine s struggle with her guilt played into the story She often felt like she shouldn t be enjoying things or doing fun stuff, while her mother was ill I found it relatable It is often difficult to enjoy things, when you know a loved one is suffering, and it was that inner turmoil, which really endeared Jo to me Overall I thought Pyros did a great job incorporating issues of divorce, cancer, anxiety, friends, and family while keeping the story on the lighter side and still having some impact ARC provided in exchange

well as her twin brother, Chance, who is very popular In fact, when the popular Autumn is planning a big, fancy boy girl party, Josephine hopes that she will get invited if she can facilitate a relationship between Autumn and her brother TO make things even awkward, Josephine has a crush on her brother s best friend, and asking him to the party will be hard On top of all this ordinary middle school angst, the twin s mother drops this news she has breast cancer, and will need surgery right before the party Their father will come from two hours away to stay with them, and then their aunt will come while their mother is recuperating This is scary, and Josephine does NOT want anyone at school to know about it She doesn t want to have everyone look at her as the girl whose mom has cancer Chance has no such scruples, and dyes his hair pink to benefit breast cancer research Even after he gets in trouble for it at school, he encourages his teammates to raise money to have the entire team s hair done This, of course, lets everyone know about her family s situation, and Josephine is not happy She s worried about her mom, but also about the party, and as the two events near, she finds it harder and harder to keep things together How can she live her life but also show her mother how much she cares Strengths Personally, I think that Josephine has the right idea No one needs to know her family s story Well, the teachers should, but they should not tell anyone else and not mention it to her, just be aware in case she needs support The twin tension is a nice touch, as is the rather irresponsible noncustodial father The details of the mother s treatment are informative, and the worry the children feel is realistic The friend and romance drama is especially well done, and drama is certainly something for which I get a LOT of requests.Weaknesses The school suspending Chance about the hair dye even after the mother goes to the principal s office and tells them about her cancer doesn t seem right to me Also, Josephine s desire to keep things private is frowned upon, and I think she is entitled to her privacy What I really think Like Sonnenblick s Falling Over Sideways, this does a great job at showing how family events can impact students lives, and how normal concerns about school and friends don t fade away in the face of larger issues, just become complicated

problems, when she gets the news that her mother has breast cancer Unsure if she really wants to share the news without anyone, the choice is taken away from her when her twin brother, Chance, dyes his hair pink to support their mum Suddenly Josephine is forced to rethink her priorities, and face tough questions about what really matters and if other worries make her a monster in the face of her mother s diagnosis.Tackling the usual array of pre teen angst jealousy, sibling clashes, typical family troubles, and first love alongside big, potentially life changing issues, Pysos s novel is filled with relatable characters and a flawed by a largely lovable cast.Josephine s reaction to her mother s diagnosis, her underlying anger, guilt and fear, alongside her outward need for control and normalcy ring true, creating a well rounded protagonist who worries just a tad too much about what others think but comes across as an authentic pre teen voice Worried that she is a bad person for thinking of things outside of her mother s cancer Josephine seems fairly in tune with her emotions A little mature for her age in places but still having distinct, believable worries and concerns for her age, Pysosdoes a great job of not only explaining issues around mental health and fear, but normalising them.While the adults in Pink Hair and Other Bad Ideas primarily play a background role, Josephine and Chance s mother s reaction to her diagnosis, as well as how she seems to try and juggle that with reassuring her kids comes across so well Tackling the issue around how different people deal with the diagnosis of a loved one in different ways, we see both the selflessness and selfishness that can follow, as well as interesting points raised around how we cope with big news, and how considerate we should be of those around us If you know a tween reader who is struggling with anxiety, peer pressure, or is experiencing emotional upheaval, Pink Hair and Other Bad Ideas is a great book to show how they can work through and recognise their issues.If you re of a general fan of middle grade or YA fiction, there are a few plot strands that feel unresolved and rushed in places, but overall it still feels like a satisfying read flag Like see review Jan 17, 2019 Alyce Hunt rated it it was ok Shelves 2019 releases, childrens fiction, netgalley When Josephine s mum announces that

ideas He gets his hair dyed pink to raise awareness of breast cancer, and soon enough the entire school are planning to get their hair dyed in solidarity.Well, the entire school except Josephine, who would never want to be the centre of attention.My main issue with Pink Hair and Other Terrible Ideas is that the ages of the characters don t ring true Josephine reads as though she s either seven or eight, while Chance seems like an older brother than a twin It feels as though they were aged up to allow for the hair dying aspect of the plot although most hair dyes don t recommend use on under 16s, so take precautions if you re inspired by the characters in this novel.The other issue I had was that Josephine s mum s breast cancer was treated as a subplot I think Andrea Pyros was intending to show that teenagers have lots of different things going on in their lives, so if a family member gets cancer it s just one of many difficulties for them to face, but Josephine came across as shallow She s interested in Autumn s party and maintaining her social status than her mum she even admits to herself that she completely forgets about her mum at times As someone who lost a close family member to cancer at the same age as Josephine, I was expecting to be heartbroken yet inspired by Pink Hair and Other Terrible Ideas Instead, I was rather infuriated Josephine is self entitled outraged when her best friend is upset that she didn t share her mum s diagnosis and self obsessed, genuinely believing that Chance getting his hair dyed will put her at the centre of attention In reality, Chance gets applauded and people forget Josephine s even his sister, and she s not happy with that either It s so contradictory and hypocritical, and if I d rolled my eyes any harder I think they would have stayed in my skull.This book wasn t a terrible idea, but I wouldn t recommend it to any teenagers who find themselves in Josephine s position, because I don t think it ll come across as comforting or anything that they can relate to.This review was originally posted on The Bumbling Blogger flag Like see review Sep 11, 2018 Jenni Frencham rated it liked it Shelves arc netgalley,

cancer Josephine doesn t want to stand out at school, so she tries not to tell anyone, but then her brother, in a show of support, dyes his hair bright pink, and Josephine finds she cannot hide any longer.This was a great idea for a book, but it ended super abruptly There were lots of threads of the story that were picked up and then dropped It reads like a book for middle grade students 3rd 4th grade , but the main characters are twelve and have crushes and go to boy girl parties, etc etc, which makes it hard to place this book in the library.I wasn t sure why the idea of the principal complaining about Josephine s brother s pink hair was placed in the story when it wasn t fleshed out later on The whole football team could have gotten their hair dyed, or Josephine s friends could have done it, or many people from the school or something It seemed like a major plot point, but then it disappeared, along with most of the details of the mom s cancer and treatments, recovery, etc The dad wasn t very well rounded, either readers are told that he is fairly irresponsible and childish, but that s all we get I think this book would have benefited with length to tie up the loose ends of the story or with editing to take away the unnecessary subplots the dad being a giant child, the boy girl party not actually involving any risque activity, the outlawing pink hair at the school thing, etc etc I like the idea of this book, but it failed on the execution.Recommended for middle grade and tweensRed Flags noneOverall Rating 3 5 starsI received a complimentary copy of this

but as someone who can relate to all of her thoughts, i can say for sure that she has anxiety I love how her friends are aware of this and help her with this That was really refreshing Relatable That is for sure I think everyone who has ever been 12 can relate to this book Well, at least girls will I also really liked the fact that there are rich people in this plot who are not absolute bitches

serious It s difficult, heartbreaking, and confusing I can t imagine a child being in the middle of that In Pink Hair and Other Terrible Ideas,Pyros shows us how two people, siblings, deal with their mother s breast cancer diagnosis What I loved about this book was that Pyros showed us how people can have completely different thoughts, fears, and methods of coping with difficult situations Every reaction is not only possible, but also appropriate, and no one should feel ashamed or embarrassed at how they choose to deal.The author also did a great job keeping the twins lives moving When a diagnosis such as cancer occurs in someone s life, unfortunately, the world around the family keeps moving School and work responsibilities are still there, school activities are still held, and

out of the spotlight and not tell anyone even her friends about this, but then Chance dyes his hair pink to support his mom and soon the whole school knows.All I can really say is that this book was okay I enjoyed the fact that this story exists, as I think it s important to have books that deal with things that real people have to as well, and there are definitely kids out there who can relate to this book I related to Josephine s desire for privacy I m sure that if I had received news like that, I would pretty much have the same reaction, as it isn t anyone s business what is going on in her family s personal life, and though I think Chance had good intentions, his actions were extremely inconsiderate to Josephine s feelings, especially when he knew her opinion No one in the book seemed to understand Josephine s feelings on privacy, showing just how hard it can be to be an introvert and private individual in today s world of sharing everything However, I don t think that s the message of the book, because in the end, Chance ends up convincing Josephine to change her mind, which I did not appreciate, though it did have some cool effects on the end of the plot.However, most of the characters were annoying are all middle schoolers this obnoxious and self obsessed and the writing stye was just average, with nothing special to define it, It was kind of fun to read but it
