Peter and Jeffrey face tough competition on their wrestling team. Alexia has a disastrous first day of school, and that s only the beginning. Anna is desperate for Charlie to propose to her mother what is he waiting for?! Danielle isn t feeling so well, but she's trying to tough it out, like Grandma. Trouble with a bully makes Luke dread going to school for the first time ever. And Jessica is waiting anxiously for an acceptance to a theater retreat in New York City.

"Buyea has a knack for making his character s voices distinct. This offering will resonate with tween audiences seeking realistic stories with multifaceted characters. Fans of the Terupt novels will cheer as the Snow Hill crowd enters seventh grade, though this latest volume will also appeal to newcomers to the series."--"School Library Journal"
"This third in the series [is] as easy for new readers to pick up as it is for returning fans. A warmly gracious invitation to a convincing middle school world."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"The individual personalities and abilities of Buyea s characters emerge through their narratives as they tell about their interests and feelings, including moves from friendships to budding romantic relationships. Danielle s narrative includes a scientific explanation of diabetes type one and her courageous attitude in learning how to manage her health. This is an engaging read with broad appeal.--"VOYA," Recommended"
