By: Crystal Allen
Call #: J Allen.C
School is about to get even better for spunky, fourth grade Texan, Mya Tibbs. Along with being in the same class as her new best friend, popular, beauty pageant-winning, Naomi Jackson, the school is about to have its annual Spirit Week! And the prize is a pair of VIP tickets to the town’s Fall Festival, complete with a rodeo, great food, rides, and Battle of the Bands being judged by pop sensation, La’Nique. All Mya and Naomi have to do is make sure they have each other as partners and the VIP tickets will surely be theirs! They’ve even cemented the plan with a pinky-promise.
But then the unthinkable happens; they get different classmates as partners! And Mya doesn’t get just anyone! She gets mean Connie Tate, the biggest bully in her grade. Now Mya’s being called Mya Tibbs Fibs by her best friend and the rest of the school. Will Mya survive spirit week, being paired with a bully? Who will win the coveted VIP tickets? Will Mya have any friends by the time this thing is through?
