Book Review


Parker Bell absolutely loves science, and she is thrilled when she finds out that the school is holding a science triathlon. But when her best friend Cassie invites Theo to be on their team, Parker thinks Theo might completely ruin their chances of winning. Theo had been Parker’s science partner in second grade, where, in an experiment, they could never get anything to sink or float. Not only is Parker’s chance of ever becoming like her idols, Jane Goodall and Mae Jemison, slipping away, but she’s not too thrilled about the idea of sharing Cassie with Theo. But if she uses all her powers of scientific inquiry, Parker may find that Theo is not so bad after all.
