Fifth grader Olive has lots of friends, but not one best friend. When it comes time for the school variety show, she finds that works against her. Every “clique” in the grade has their own act, and she just doesn’t quite “click” with anybody else. Her mom just wants to jump in and call Emilie’s mom and ask if Olive can join Emilie’s act. That is the LAST thing Olive wants, of course. She wants her friends to WANT her in their group. It’s a good thing cool, blue-streak-haired Aunt Molly is there to bounce ideas off. And now Olive just might have the perfect idea for how she can participate. The experiences in this book for Olive seem so right on with what I remember from 5th grade and what I hear from my own 5th grade daughter! I can’t wait to read the next one in the series, Camp!
