Fall Reading 2016 Kate the Great: Winner Takes All


Kate is a wonderful and perfectly normal 5th grader. She struggles with balancing two best friends. Worries over basketball tryouts. Has a hard time keeping her older sister's secret about a boyfriend. Has to overcome her nervousness about meeting an elderly neighbor. She also has great parents, funny sisters, and a dog named Molly (who's a boy). 

For readers who enjoy school and family stories with characters who are dealing with real-life situations, Kate is a wonderful new protagonist. Whether she is dealing with homework, scout service projects, getting her ears pierced, or having an argument with a friend - her reactions are entertaining without losing their authenticity.

Great for middle grade students and fans of books like How to Outrun a Crocodile If Your Shoes Are Untied.

I received a copy for review purposes.
