Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

Author Donna Gephart has created a rich, fun, believable story with a heroine readers can identify with easily. Everyone has had embarrassing moments in school they think they'll never live down, and everyone worries that when their big shot comes they may fall flat. Olivia tackles it all -- including family issues -- with courage, typical tween grumbling, and a few tears.

This is the kind of heartwarming story kids will love because it has great characters, a believable dialogue and fun and sometimes gross trivia facts. Parents should be prepared to talk about different kinds of families and maybe infidelity, as it becomes a key plot point in the book.
