A friend said the voice of this MG has lots of zing, and that’s a great way to put it. Kyle has a wonderful amount of personality and spunk, and the writing is lively, as when a friend “turns to point at me all suspish.” The story centers on Kyle entering sixth grade, and how she has to navigate through a bully in gym class, her friends changing, being honest with her parents, a competition in creative problem solving, and maybe even liking a guy. It moves right along, and through it all Kyle’s enthusiasm and bravado, balanced by her worries, makes her a great character to follow. The writing itself is well done, melding with insight and grace the themes of trust and exploration, as well as finding your own particular style and seeing what you have to offer. All of that is supported by authentic details, like pencil dust by the sharpener and the smells and sounds of school. Salom’s bio says she’s been a teacher, and it shows. My only reservation is how the story leads up to the competition in problem solving, and all along you’ve been trying to figure out how you’d solve the challenge of guiding a fellow student through a maze. And yet we’re told only how one other team went about it. Would’ve liked to have seen more there, if just 'cause I wanted to test my Godzilla and super ball slingshot solution against the rest. In the end, it’s an uplifting, funny, sincere story with all the quirky warmth of the Ramona books, and highly recommended.
