Summary

A hilarious and spunky new heroine in the vein of the heroines of such beloved books as Ramona the Pest, Ivy and Bean, and Clementine, from Crystal Allen--the acclaimed author of How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy.

Nine-year-old Mya Tibbs is boot-scootin' excited for the best week of the whole school year--SPIRIT WEEK! She and her megapopular best friend, Naomi Jackson, even made a pinky promise to be Spirit Week partners so they can win the big prize: special VIP tickets to the Fall Festival!

But when the partner picking goes horribly wrong, Mya gets paired with Mean Connie Tate--the biggest bully in school. And she can't get out of it.

Good gravy.

Now Naomi is friend-ending mad at Mya for breaking a promise--even though Mya couldn't help it--and everyone at school is calling Mya names. Can Mya work with Mean Connie to win the VIP tickets and get her best friend back?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The pitfalls of navigating fourth-grade social dynamics is at the heart of this winning series debut. African American Mya Tibbs loves Spirit Week. She and her new BFF, local pageant queen Naomi Jackson, have plans to be Spirit Week partners and win the VIP tickets to the Fall Festival. But Mya gets paired with the school bully, Mean Connie, and immediately finds herself on the wrong end of Naomi's temper; Naomi uses her social cachet to ostracize Mya. Desperate, Mya walks a tightrope between proving her loyalty to Naomi and winning Spirit Week with Connie, who is not at all as mean as the rumors claim. A subplot involving Mya's brother's attempts to ditch an unwanted nickname complements her discoveries about genuine friendship versus callous manipulation. Allen has created a charming heroine in Mya, who can swing a lasso, use her braids as a calendar, and tell the occasional tall tale. She survives the slings and arrows of Spirit Week with panache, and a happy ending sets up the next book.--Dean, Kara Copyright 2015 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this entertaining first book in the Magnificent Mya Tibbs series, African-American fourth-grader Mya dreams of becoming a cowgirl someday, but her immediate goal is winning her school's Spirit Week. The two winners from each grade get VIP tickets to their Texas town's fall festival, and Mya and her new best friend, Naomi, have their eyes on the prize. But when Mya is paired with class bully Connie and doesn't push to swap partners, it drives a wedge between the two girls. Mya's warm, loving family runs a farm and ranch store where Mya and her older brother, Nugget, help out. Like Mya, Nugget is struggling with friend troubles-in his case, wanting to become more popular. While Mya's journey toward discovering what real friendship looks like is fairly conventional, Allen (The Laura Line) has created a big-hearted, high-spirited, cowboy-booted heroine ("The yippee is back in my ki-yay," she thinks as things begin to look up). The story's vivid small-town setting and memorable characters will have many readers looking forward to more from Mya. Ages 8-12. Agent: Jennifer Rofé, Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
