Review:

Praise for Agnes Parker . . . Keeping Cool in Middle School
* "O’Dell’s writing perfectly captures the painful and sometimes funny middle-school years. Agnes will once again charm readers with her sweet and generous nature, even as she navigates the new and scary world of seventh grade. Thoughtful and captivating."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review 

"O'Dell addresses trust, loyalty, respect, and love with the kindness and humor found in the work of those authors who've become staples with middle-grade readers."—School Library Journal

"Agnes is just as likable in this latest installment which is poignant, light, and never saccharine."—Booklist

Praise for Agnes Parker . . . Girl In Progress
* "In this accomplished first novel, O'Dell probes the sixth-grade mindset pithily and perceptively."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"It's what you might call a cusp-of-coming-of-age novel—and a thoughtful, gently humorous, resonant one at that."—The Horn Book

"This satisfying and good-humored story will leave readers hoping for Agnes Parker's return."—School Library Journal

"O'Dell creates some of the liveliest characters in recent young adult fiction. Agnes is a great everygirl, with a touch of resourcefulness and heart thrown in, and her sidekick Prejean is sassy and outgoing. Neidermeyer is one of the best girl bullies to appear in years. The events in the story are told with the right mix of zaniness and sincerity, and they avoid sentimentality and overstatement. O'Dell is clearly in tune with young teenage girls and understands their embarrassments and their triumphs. She credits Beverly Cleary as an inspiration, and it is evident that Agnes is the literary offspring of Ramona. Readers can only hope to continue to watch her progress."—VOYA
