Overview

It’s a new school year, and Miss O’s new teacher is a complete nightmare! Mean, unfair, strict...and she has decided that Olivia is trouble with a capital O no you don't, young lady. School rumor has it that sometime in the misty past, the teacher threw a piece of chalk that took out a kid’s eye! Gross—but could it be true? When other mysterious stories around the school demand investigation, Miss O and her friends Justine, Harlie, and Isabella, along with her sister, Juliette, create a Web site to get to the bottom of them. Will it be Miss O who vindicates the very teacher who wants to fail her? This first book in the Miss O and Friends series introduces the five friends with a lively, engaging story that teaches about working with others, problem-solving, taking action, and keeping an open mind.

Each book in the Miss O and Friends series is told from the perspective of one of the friends, focusing on her unique perspective and interests, and each one is fun to read, action-packed, and full of answers and sound advice for meeting the real-life challenges of tween girls.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This perkily paced if predictable caper launches the Miss O & Friends series, a spinoff of an interactive tween-targeted Web site that features five middle-school girls. Narrating this installment is Miss O (n e Olivia), an ace soccer player and aspiring baker, who has a rocky start to fifth grade. She is assigned to the "dungeon of dread," the classroom of an allegedly ultra mean teacher, who a Google search reveals may have spent some time behind bars. Miss O's sister, Juliette, a sixth-grader who has moved to another division of their private school, has abandoned Miss O and her three best friends for another cache of friends and is too caught up in her new life to pay attention to her younger sibling's problems. Luckily, Miss O's "peeps" stylish Justine, sports fanatic Isabella and gymnast Harlie are there to support their beleaguered pal and encourage her in her attempt to win the school baking contest. Speregen tidily pulls together some standard ingredients of commercial middle-grade fiction: friends' camaraderie, siblings' squabbling and a dollop of melodrama. This may well entice girls who met these characters on the Internet to get to know them better on the written page. Ages 8-up. (Aug.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature - Mary Loftus
This book has loads of exclamation points! According to an introduction written by Juliette, sister to Miss O, this series was inspired by a web site. Young readers may not realize that Miss O and her friends originated as a marketing tool. The book is the first in the "Miss O and Friends" series. The trouble comes with fifth grade and Mrs. Hintermeister, also called The Hinter Monster. Miss O (for Olivia) navigates her way through a new classroom, a sister is suddenly acting all "middle division," and a cooking contest causes problems. Miss O's friends use IMs to chat when they are not in school, and while "Googling" one night Isabella makes a stunning discovery about The Hinter Monster. Miss O takes a test, plays a soccer game, and enters the contest before tracking down the truth about her teacher. The various story elements do come together neatly in the conclusion, but Mrs. Hinterneister makes a rather surprising switch at the end. Portrayed as a strict and demanding teacher, her friendly and helpful side emerges abruptly. Readers who are looking for light entertainment will find that Miss O delivers just that.

    Miss O has trouble when her teacher turns out to be the most strict teacher in the whole school, but at least she has her friends, right? NOT! <BR/><BR/>Juliette, her sister and BFF, has moved to 6th grade--and that means new friends. Juliette starts hanging out with new people and not with Miss O anymore. How will Miss O get through 5th grade without Juliette? <BR/><BR/>When Miss O enters a baking contest, she accidentally messes up the recipe and the judges are definitely NOT impressed. How will Mrs. Hinstermeister save the day? Read the book to find out! <BR/><BR/>I give it 5 stars! I highly recommend this book!

    I thought it was really cool!

    I got this from a bookfair so I had no idea what I was buying.When I read it it was a real story in my mind.The relationships with everyone seemed so real.My brother and I are really close. We have a lot of little fights here and there just like Miss O and Juliette. I hope you like the book as much as I did.

    Starts With a Bang

    A little short of a story, but a big accomplishment for a fifth grader to publish her own book series! Overall the story was great and taught you a good lesson too.

    This was EXCELLENT

    The first book in the Miss O and friends series was pretty good. I finished it in a day! But I think Miss O needed to make it a bit...longer. But i know she's a 5th grader, and it's an accomplishment to even have wrote a book,but still.
