From Kirkus Reviews:

After years of growing up with Collette Murphy, readers are thrust back in time to see what Sacred Heart Elementary is like from the perspective of one of her two best friends. Marsha has vowed not to get into trouble and to make this school year a good one, especially because she likes the student teacher, Miss Murtland. But Marsha's good intentions and penchant for lying butt up against Roger Friday's natural high spirits; the combination nearly gets one of them tossed out of school. McKenna fans will like this peek at Marsha's motives, often obscure in the other stories, but Roger's scenes are the real pleasure; the author paints an intriguing portrait of a boy who seems deceptively like a potential bully--perfectly exasperating but ultimately shown to be (fairly) well-meaning. The children have funny, typical school quarrels; as a writer of light fare, McKenna again weighs in with a real look at real kids. (Fiction. 8-10) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5-Marsha begins third grade at Sacred Heart Elementary with a signed resolution to avoid getting into trouble. She is excited about having a new student teacher until Miss Murtland assigns archenemy Roger as her classroom buddy. The girl schemes to get rid of him, but when she tells a lie that results in Roger's suspension from school, she must find the courage to set the situation right. The book's length may be intimidating to younger readers attracted by the title, while older readers may be put off by the age of the protagonist. However, the story integrates humor and serious interpersonal issues well, and fans of McKenna's "Murphy" series (Scholastic) will welcome another encounter with some familiar characters.
