From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 Lila and her friends are typical middle - class school children . The continuing saga of their fifth-grade days in Mr. Sherman's class is unfolded, one episode per chapter, in Lila's first-person narrative. After hefting a window-breaking rock during weekend camp, Lila conceives an ingenious way to earn repair costsconning her cabin mates into placing their spending money on a dare that Lila cannot pull off a prank on their no-nonsense counselor. In fact, Lila's great ideas supply resolutions for all five dilemmas recounted. Lila is an all-around, all-right girl. Middle graders will be comfortable with McMullan's casual but deftly limned characters, believable plots, and undemanding style. Katharine Bruner, Brown Middle School, Harrison, Tenn.

From Publishers Weekly:

This collection of five stories is held together by fifth-grade Lila's creative solutions to problems and her imaginative ways of outsmarting "Miss Perfect" Rita Morgan. In "The Bet" Lila earns the money she needs to pay for a window broken at camp by getting all the girls to dare her to play a prank on a counselor. In another story, she finds the perfect farewell present for a beloved teacher. Sometimes Lila's ideas outdo themselves: when she cheers up a friend by designing a Halloween costume for her, it takes the prize Lila had hoped to win. Lila herself is the best idea in this book; she is spunky, loyal to her friends and quick to use her sarcastic brand of humor against herself when warranted. Readers will eagerly await a sequel.
