Half a Chance by Cynthia Lord

When Lucy's family moves to an old house on a lake, Lucy tries to see her new home through her camera's lens, as her father has taught her -- he's a famous photographer, away on a shoot. Will her photos ever meet his high standards? When she discovers that he's judging a photo contest, Lucy decides to enter anonymously. She wants to find out if her eye for photography is really special -- or only good enough.

As she seeks out subjects for her photos, Lucy gets to know Nate, the boy next door. But slowly the camera reveals what Nate doesn't want to see: his grandmother's memory is slipping away, and with it much of what he cherishes about his summers on the lake. This summer, Nate will learn about the power of art to show truth. And Lucy will learn how beauty can change lives . . . including her own.

I liked this book because it is told by the main character and Lucy has a very descriptive way of talking. 
Lucy has just moved to a new house, when she meets Nate. She tells him she wants to enter a photography contest; the only thing she DOES’NT tell him is that her dad is judging the photography contest. Will Nate find out? Read an awesome book to uncover the truth!

Happy reading!
