Zoey Lyndon and her family, consisting of her mom, dad, and older sister Jasmine, move from their home in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to St. Louis, Missouri due to her father’s job. Of course, the move had to take place right at the beginning of a new school year, which made Zoey extremely nervous. Entering the 4th grade without her old friends would be hard enough, but what if she could not make any new friends, or what if she went into the wrong bathroom and ended up in the boys' bathroom? Despite being nervous, she makes it through her first couple of days, even though she eats alone at lunch. Then, suddenly everything changes when she meets Tomasina, or Tommi, at lunch one day. The two become good friends, join the science fair together, and hang out with other friends as well. Fourth grade is beginning to look a whole lot brighter to Zoey in Micheal Anderson's Zoey Lyndon's Big Move to the Lou.

Zoey Lyndon’s Big Move to the Lou by Micheal Anderson is a wonderful children’s chapter book with a well-developed plot and relatable characters. Designed to give the reader the perspective of the main character Zoey, a fourth grader, a reader can easily imagine themselves, or someone they have known being in similar situations as described in the story. Micheal Anderson does an incredible job of portraying the emotions of a young girl entering an unfamiliar environment for the first time. A parent or guardian who knows their child will have to go through a similar situation would benefit from obtaining a copy.
