Olive “clicks” with everyone in the fifth grade—until one day she doesn’t. When a school variety show leaves Olive stranded without an act to join, she begins to panic, wondering why all her friends have already formed their own groups . . . without her. With the performance drawing closer by the minute, will Olive be able to find her own place in the show before the curtain comes up?
I loved this graphic novel! This book took me right back to my middle grade years and the roller coaster of emotions that ensues middle school!
Olive’s fifth grade class is having a talent show and all her friends have paired off with other kids for their act, leaving Olive on her own. As everyone continues to practice for their act, Olive feels more and more alone.
I think so many middle graders can relate to the emotions that Olive goes through in the story. Some days you feel on top of the world with the best of friends, and the next day, not a single friend. I totally clicked with this story and Olive!
