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.
