Donna Gephart has produced a winner yet again. Olivia Bean Trivia Queen is a fun-filled book about a young girl in search of a spot on the famed Jeopardy show. As with all Gephart's books, this character's inner thoughts take us from mild chuckling to laugh out loud funny. Gephart's gift, however, is how she weaves the poignant and more serious story line amidst the laughs. Olivia's parents have divorced and her father moved far away. Not only does Olivia miss him desperately, but now she has to get used to her mother's new live-in boyfriend, Neal. Armed with trivia books and a saddled with a younger brother with a penchant for gross trivia, Olivia forges on. Throughout her journey, she learns that the best people to have on her side are the ones who live with her and support her no matter what. Filled with bits of trivia, this book is enjoyable from the first page to the last. A MUST READ for anyone - of any age -- who loves Jeopardy!

This book is one to make you laugh and cry. Olivia is loving to her family including a stressed, money-on-the-mind-mom, slightly naive brother and stepfather, whom she is wary of at first but comes to love. As Livi makes her way toCalifornia to be on Jeopardy!, she pines away for the people who live there. As infrences tell readers, her father married her best friend's mom and moved them to California. Nikki, the friend, blames poor old Olivia and despises her. (I hate that nikki girl.) I am not to the end of the book yet and since i am eager to see what happens next with Olivia's relashionships and with Jeopardy, I am going to go read! I advise you buy this book and do the same.
