Grade 5-6-First published in France, this novel depicts the universal trials and tribulations of middle school with the added flavor of the French setting. Margot Melo is eagerly anticipating sixth grade, even though the thought of this big event is a little scary. After assembling all the relevant records, getting new photos taken, and figuring out what to wear, Margot arrives for the first day. School is much more chaotic and crowded than she expected-there are so many students in the halls; her classmates are constantly chattering, making it hard to concentrate; and her teachers seem to give arbitrary assignments and grades. Nevertheless, little by little, the girl adapts and is elected class representative. Her plans to organize her fellow students mostly fail and Margot is forced to conclude that she can only control her own destiny. The rest of the year has its ups and downs-the class trip to Rome isn't the grand adventure she had expected, but the entire class has a delightful escapade during a one-day teachers' strike. By the time summer comes around, Margot is ready to leave sixth grade behind. The protagonist is an engaging character who matures a bit during the year, even concluding that boys might be interesting after all.-Terrie Dorio, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
