Grades 3 & up

Gertie is on a mission to become the best fifth grader ever! She has to you, you see, because her mother who left when she was baby is about to move out of town and Gertie needs to prove that she doesn’t need her. But a new girl that just joined her class seems to be better than Gertie at everything, and is turning the rest of the class against her. Will this be the first mission that Gertie doesn’t complete? There is too much at stake for Gertie to feel. Any student who has ever felt left out or ostracized will relate to Gertie. Recommended for grades 3 & up.
