Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anita Lock
For those who are new to these chapter books, Samantha Martone, better known as Sam, is a writer for the Cherry Valley Voice, her middle school newspaper. She is also the advice columnist, the Know-It-All, which is a well-kept secret; Mr. Trigg, who is from England, is the only one who knows because...well, he is the faculty advisor, so he ought to know! Her journalism skills are good, and she knows it. This is why Mr. Trigg pairs her with Michael Lawrence, another good writer, when articles are assigned. Samantha, who has known Michael since kindergarten, has a crush on him. That is another well-guarded secret, except for Hailey her BFF (best friend forever) to whom she confides. Sam, excited about what new issue Mr. Trigg will present to her and Michael, is quickly deflated when a transfer student from Manchester, England, Kate Bigley, shows up at the newsroom for the staff meeting and asks if she can get involved. Overjoyed that she is from his mother country and is familiar with year-round schooling—the new issue he plans to assign to Sam and Michael—Mr. Trigg decides to give the article to Michael and Kate. Now left in a lurch, Sam is given a solo assignment on school uniforms. Angry and hurt that she cannot work alongside Michael, and also jealous that Kate may steal her crush, Sam has to decide how she is going to handle these sudden developments. Fortunately, she has a great relationship with her mom, who knows how to give thought-provoking advice. Wise creates intelligent, confident characters with realistic plots that exclude dysfunctional relationships. It is refreshing to know that there is fiction available that focuses on youth's personal strengths and potential, rather than outward appearances. Whether these books are familiar or new to tween and teen readers, no doubt they will enjoy following Sam's school adventures from chapter to chapter. Reviewer: Anita Lock

Meet the Author

Rachel Wise loves to give advice. When she’s not editing or writing children’s books, which she does full-time at a publisher in New York, she’s reading advice columns in newspapers, magazines, and blogs—and is always sure her advice would be better! Her dream is to someday have her own talk show, where she could share her wisdom with millions of people at once, but for now she’s happy to dole out advice in small portions in Dear Know-It-All books.
