Revenge of the Snob Squad

Overview

When the relay race teams are chosen in gym class, it's clear that one team doesn't have a chance of winning: Jenny is more interested in eating candy than running around a track; Prairie has a bad leg; Lydia is a complete klutz; and Max is, well, Max. But together, they proudly dub themselves the 'Snob Squad' and vow revenge on their arch enemies, the Neon Nikes, headed by the principal's spoiled daughter, Ashley Krupps.

Overview

When the relay race teams are chosen in gym class, it's clear that one team doesn't have a chance of winning: Jenny is more interested in eating candy than running around a track; Prairie has a bad leg; Lydia is a complete klutz; and Max is, well, Max. But together, they proudly dub themselves the 'Snob Squad' and vow revenge on their arch enemies, the Neon Nikes, headed by the principal's spoiled daughter, Ashley Krupps.

As the Snob Squad members band together to thwart the Neon Nikes, they realize that their greatest weapon might not be as out of reach as they think.

Sixth-grade misfits Jenny, Max, Prairie, and Lydia plot to ignite a romance between Prairie and the object of her affection, Hugh Torkerson, otherwise known as Tork the Dork.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leslie Julian
Fitting in, making tough choices, figuring out who you are, fighting peer pressure, and thwarting bullies-middle school life has its share of challenges. With Jenny as our narrator and guide, however, we are strengthened by her quick wit and ultimate honesty. Readers will grow with Jenny as she learns a valuable lesson about revenge and friendship.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Told from the perspective of a wisecracking, overweight sixth-grade girl, this contemporary story deals with typical adolescent issues--appearance; popularity; social status; physical, emotional, and psychological differences; and friendship. Peters uses humor to hook readers and to get her positive messages across. Jenny Solano and her group of fellow outsiders form "the Snob Squad," but realize after a series of unsuccessful schemes that revenge is not always as sweet as they had imagined. Readers will chuckle as they read each new episode, such as "Operation Green Hair." This amusing light read is sure to be popular with fans of the Babysitters Club and with readers who have outgrown Ellen Conford's Jenny Archer. It deals realistically with problems that many youngsters face and may even allow them to laugh at themselves in the process.-Barb Lawler, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
Kirkus Reviews
Peters (How Do You Spell GEEK?, 1996, etc.) chronicles the trials and triumphs of a group of misfits, who call themselves the Snob Squad and take on the Neon Nikes, sixth grade's ruling clique. Overweight Jenny, physically challenged Prairie Cactus, sixth-grade bad girl Max, and whiny, overprotected Lydia make an unlikely relay-race team. But united in their opposition to the popular Neon Nikes, a team led by the principal's snotty daughter, Ashley Krupps, they band together as the Snob Squad, and achieve an uneasy camaraderie. As they get to know each other better ("It was weird. The feel of other people, the sounds of group chewing"), their fragile alliance blossoms into real friendship. In the meantime, worried about her daughter's weight, dropping grades, and social isolation, Jenny's mother wants to take her to a psychologist; Jenny attempts to get the appointment canceled, but by the time she makes the dreaded visit, she has, with the help of her new friends, pretty much figured things out on her own. Between bites of every kind of candy imaginable, Jenny provides a glib, fast-paced first-person narration, which is peppered with verbal repartee and humorous asides about her classmates. Peters's writing is smooth and funny page to page, which makes this an enjoyable read, despite some far-fetched plot developments. A great jacket painting of the four girls will have this jumping off the shelves. (Fiction. 8-12)
