Unpopular sixth-grader Burdette 'Bird' Weaver persuades the newboy at school,who everyone thinks is mean and dumb,to be her partner for a spelling bee that might win her everything she'sever wanted.

A book about friendship and family. About winning and losing, and how to tell the difference. They just don't make spunky heroines like Burdette Weaver (Bird for short) any better. O'Connor writes with such humor and knows how to tell a story kids will love. Don't miss this one. FAME AND GLORY IN FREEDOM, GEORGIA received a Parents' Choice Gold Award.

One of the best things about being a children's librarian is discovering new (to me) children's authors.  Barbara O'Connor popped up on my radar when Fame and Glory in Freedom, Georgia was a Sunshine State Reader for the school year 2005-2006.  I checked it out one night after work, read it, and brought it back the next morning.  In those few hours of a hasty reading, Ms. O'Connor won me over.  Barbara O'Connor has a clear, distinct, Southern voice.  Her characters are quirky, funny, a bit tumble-down, rumpled and flawed, but with hearts as big as the state of South Carolina.  I fell in love with Bird, the main character in Fame and Glory, about seven years ago when I first read this book, and all over again today when I re-read it.  Bird's story ends with a happy ending, but not a fairy tale ending.  She is not a passive person.  She is not a perfect person.  She is, however, a perfect character; as, I suspect, is Ms. O'Connor.

My teacher read this to us last year. Good, but to " Oh, Miss Delphine loves my good ol' Georgia\Texas accent and my sappy love and freindship stories. Now ya'll, let's go back to riding our horses across the Georgia friendship love pasture. Yeehaw!" Yah.
