    Clive Bennington is my new role model!! This is the fourth book

    Clive Bennington is my new role model!! This is the fourth book in the Ordinary Kids book series. This one features a middle school transplant from England named Clive. She's a bit Bohemian and could potentially get into a lot of trouble if not monitored by her new best friend, the perfectionistic Morgan Forester. The two girls befriend Aba, a savant who was injured by a car when very young. Together, the three girls go about solving the problem of their phys ed coach and they then befriend the boys from the first three books in the series (Peter Henderson, Steve Harlan and Potsie Potsdam). They all undertake a special project in the school talent show and as a result, they learn a lot about growing up.

    This mid-grade book is a delight for both boys and girls to read and surely, they will begin to understand how to unravel some of the complexities of the coming-of-age issues. Relationships are explored and the characters develop according to their motivation to learn about themselves and one another. I laughed all the way through at Clive's take on the world. Her loyalties were absolutely admirable!!

    MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK This book brings back characters fr


    This book brings back characters from the first three books in the Ordinary Kids series. Steve Harlan, Peter Henderson and Potsie Potsdam along with new student Clive Bennington  team up to solve mysteries and learn about relationships which will carry them into high school. Clive is blessed to find such good friends when his life is changed when he is moved from another country to a Nebraska middle school. And again Dr. Karen Pirnot writes an awesome story for the younger generation to read! Morgan and Clive is fun and exciting and is sure to capture the attention of anyone who starts reading it. I like that the relationship between these friends shows others how important it is to be a friend to new people when they come into school. Not everyone accepts new students, and those who do are very special people, just as Steve, Peter and Potsie are.  Don’t miss another book in Dr. Pirnot’s wonderful series An Ordinary Kids Book!

    I received this book from the author, Dr. Karen Hutchins Pirnot to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.

    "Morgan and Clive" is another book in Karen Pirnot's thoughtful and inspiring 'Ordinary Kids series' which is intended for pre-teen kids. The main characters in these stories face hurdles. Here we meet Clive, short for Clivinia, who has just moved to the States from England and starts Middle School. She is lively and spirited and tackles being different from the other kids with gusto. Alongside her is another new girl, Anna, who is unable to speak following an accident. She faces rather tougher hurdles than Clive, but together, with the ever good-natured Morgan, the two new kids settle in and learn to cope with the hustle and bustle and stresses of school. They prove to be invaluable members of the school and have their moment of glory.

    This book is incredibly positive. Like the optimism of some of the characters, its upbeat focus is infectious. It has been written by a clinical psychologist who has worked extensively with families and children. You can add confidence to the qualities of the writing. It deals with a very hard topic and makes it accessible without playing it down or being too didactic. Youngsters will be informed and those either facing a similar illness, or seeing it in a friend, will be comforted and encouraged to accept what life has presented them with and see how to adapt to it. The writing style is lively and ideally suited to the age group these books are intended for.
