Synopsis

Agnes Parker isn't the class outcast or its queen bee-which is okay except that sometimes the middle just seems . . . really . . . ordinary. So Agnes sets out to be a different version of the girl she's always been. Someone who won't always get clobbered by bullies, who can some-times be cool and confident-and maybe catch the eye of that new boy in class?

New author Kathleen O'Dell offers a wise and funny story for all immersed in the thrilling and treacherous process of becoming. Kids will find a new friend, and plenty of reflections of their own thoughts and feelings, within the pages of this refreshing and insightful tale.
