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.

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.
