Goodreads:   Annika Riz loves math more than anything. She’s trying to teach her dog, Prime, to count. She’s determined to beat fellow math whiz Simon Ellis in a Sudoku contest at the public library. She even sleeps under number-patterned sheets. But Annika’s best friends Kelsey and Izzy think math is boring. All they care about is the upcoming school carnival: their principal is going to be dunked in a dunking tank and their class is going to have a booth selling home-baked cookies. But then disaster foils the friends’ cookie-baking plans. Can math save the day?

Ope’s Opinion:  Claudia Mills really knows how to write a story in the perspective of a  middle grade student.  She has an awesome way of showing the positive attributes of each  student.  I am also impressed with her writing of the friendships between the girls.  They are supportive of each other, but everything isn’t all perfect. 

If you have a person in your life who is looking for books to read – Claudia Mills has several that I can recommend.   Kelsey Green, Reading Queen and Zero Tolerance are both great!  She has written several others too.

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this so much I know several friends to recommend it to.
